Tottenham defender, Kyle Walker, wants to prove himself on an international scale after Fabio Capello selected him as part of the 25-man squad to play in Wednesday’s friendly against Holland.
Walker has impressed greatly in the last 12 months, helping QPR gain promotion whilst on loan at Loftus Road, as well as playing well while on loan at Aston Villa.
The 21 year-old is delighted with the chance he now has, noting: “I’m delighted to be here with the likes of John Terry and Rio Ferdinand. These are the guys I’ve been watching and it’s an honour to be around them.”
Walker will be competing with Micah Richards and Phil Jagielka for a starting place in the England setup, after Glen Johnson picked up a knock.
The Spurs full-back also spoke on the selection of England U-21 teammate, Tom Cleverley, commenting: “Tom’s a great player. We saw yesterday (in the Community Shield) what he can do on the ball. He can deliver a ball, he’s very good at crossing and very good at passing.”
