Phil Foden has lavished praise on to Manchester City teammate Kyle Walker for his sparkling display for England in their 3-1 win against Scotland.

The ‘Stockport Iniesta’ opened the scoring for Gareth Southgate’s side on Tuesday night, getting on the end of an inch-perfect delivery from the 33-year-old to tap the ball into the back of the net.

Now, Phil Foden has lauded Kyle Walker on Instagram for his impressive outing in an England shirt against Scotland at Hampden Park.

Phil Foden raves about Kyle Walker after England beat Scotland

Branded as ‘irreplaceable’ by Pep Guardiola, the £50 million (Guardian) man has been showcasing his class for the Three Lions lately.

In his nation’s recent 1-1 draw against Ukraine, the decorated right-back levelled the scores as he bagged his first ever goal at international level.

As Kyle Walker put in all-action display for England against Scotland as well as set up his side’s opener, Phil Foden sang his praises.

“What a player”, he commented on the treble-winner’s Instagram post.

Short and sweet but if these three works do not sum up Walker, what does?

Kyle Walker is growing in his new role this season

Operating much more as a traditional right-back this season, Kyle Walker is slowly but surely looking the part, as he showcased against Scotland.

Under Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham, the Englishman was not only the best but perhaps the most attack-minded full-back in the Premier League.

However, Pep Guardiola often utilised him in an inverted role, or deployed him in a withdrawn position that focused more on his defensive capabilities.

As a result, on the odd occasion that Kyle Walker bombed forward, he looked out of practice when trying to create chances or beat defenders.

But ever since Walker’s heroic outing against Sheffield United, he is making a return to the marauding right-back at Spurs.
