Walker tweets positive message despite sloppy England display

Kyle Walker was satisfied with England’s performance against Lithuania on Sunday, but others may not have felt as encouraged.

Gareth Southgate’s men got the job done by sealing a 2-0 victory at Wembley, but goals from Jermain Defoe and Jamie Vardy papered over the cracks.

The main talking point was the first goal of the game, which came from a man who had not netted for his country in four years.

At the age of 34, Defoe finally received a recall to the international side, and even though he found the back of the net, he was not part of a vintage display.

Despite that, England nabbed all three points and they remain at the top of Group F in their qualifying campaign, with a four-point advantage.

Walker, who played the full 90 minutes in London, seemed satisfied enough with what he and his teammates put out on the field.

The right-back will now switch his focus to club commitments ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s trip to face Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday.
