Kalvin Phillips lavished praise on to Kyle Walker after his bright showing for England in their latest 3-1 victory against Scotland on Tuesday night.

Phil Foden was appreciative of the decorated right-back’s performance as well, commenting, ‘what a player’ on his Instagram post.

The veteran assisted Foden’s opener with a pinpoint delivery, bombed forward throughout the contest and was typically impregnable from a defensive standpoint.

Once again, the Englishman proved why Gareth Southgate has always banked on him in his starting XI since the day he was appointed.

Kyle Walker continues to make a case for being his country’s greatest ever right-back

Branded as ‘intelligent’ by Richard Dunne (via Manchester City’s official website), the five-time Premier League winner has started to be crowned as the Premier League’s greatest right-back of all time.

Against Scotland, as Kyle Walker left Kalvin Phillips amongst many awestruck with his outing, there also needs to be a conversation about whether he is his nation’s best player in his position.

The competition that the Manchester City legend truly has in this debate is in the form of Manchester United hero Gary Neville.

But it’s fair to state that Walker’s adaptation into a completely different player at City after being the best attacking right-back in the league at Tottenham gives him the edge over Neville.

In addition, Kyle Walker is miles ahead of not just Gary Neville but most full-backs in history as a 1v1 defender.

Add the Sheffield-born defender’s consistency at both domestic and international level to the picture and the debate seems to have already been settled.
