Former Celtic manager Neil Lennon said on the BBC Radio 5 live 606 show on Saturday evening (June 18) that Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker has been outstanding for England at the ongoing European Championship in France.
“I think he has been outstanding,” said the Hibernian boss about Walker. “I think he has been the outstanding full-back in the tournament.”
Walker has featured in both of England’s games at the Euro 2016 finals and has been superb.
The Tottenham right-back has created three chances, has a pass accuracy of 79%, and has won one header, eight dribbles and two tackles.
The former Sheffield United defender has been brilliant going forward, and he has also been good defensively.
Walker enjoyed a successful 2015-16 season for Tottenham, and it seems that he has simply carried that momentum into the European Championship in France.
The 26-year-old scored one goal and created 34 chances in 33 Premier League matches for Spurs during the 2015-16 campaign.
The Englishman had a pass accuracy of 78% and a shot accuracy of 54%, and won 49 headers, 17 dribbles and 72 tackles.
England are at the top of the Euro 2016 Group B at the moment with four points from two matches.
