In quotes published on, Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker has spoken of his pride at being voted Man of the Match in England’s recent triumph over Wales at the European Championship.

The 26-year old has shone for the Three Lions so far this summer and has been a constant menace down the right flank, providing the kind of outlet he does so well week in week out for Spurs.

"Yes, it's always good to be voted Man of the Match because it shows the work you are putting in on the pitch is getting recognised,” Walker told

“Also, as a full-back, you are not going to get them as often as other players! I was just pleased to win, it was a big game for us."

Walker headed into the Euro 2016 finals in France on the back of a strong campaign for Spurs, where he managed to stay mostly injury-free and consistent for its entirety, and it looks like he is back to his devastating best.

Mauricio Pochettino’s system means pacey, energetic full-backs are crucial, and Spurs have arguably the best two in the Premier League – at least in an attacking sense – at their disposal.

Danny Rose had an equally fruitful campaign for the Lilywhites and has finally established himself on the international scene after failing to capture Roy Hodgson’s eye in recent seasons.
