Martin Keown hailed Tottenham duo Kyle Walker and Danny Rose as one of the best full-back partnerships in Europe after England’s 3-0 win over Scotland.
Gareth Southgate’s men saw off a poor Scottish team with Daniel Sturridge, Adam Lallana and Gary Cahill all scoring headers in the World Cup qualifier at Wembley on Friday night.
The Three Lions duo assisted the first two goals with pin point crosses as they played the full match at the home of football.
Former Arsenal defender Keown was highly impressed with their performance at Wembley as he explained why he believes they posses such high quality.
“Scotland were well-drilled at times, but being organised only gets you so far and it was England who provided the extra quality on Friday night — in the form of Kyle Walker and Danny Rose,” Keown told the Daily Mail.
“The Spurs pair look like one of the best full-back tandems in Europe, and the way they put crosses on a plate for Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana to score shows they can pick the right balls at the key moments.
“They’re so attacking they’re more like wingers than defenders, and they certainly improve our quality in the final third.”
Walker has played 13 Premier League and Champions League games for Spurs this season, where he has assisted two goals.
By contrast injuries have limited Left-back Rose to eight Premier League and Champions League appearances.
After the international break the north London duo will host rivals West Ham at White Hart Lane in what is expected to be a highly charged atmosphere.
