Kyle Walker posts England Twitter verdict after Lithuania triumph
By Will Butcher
Tottenham defender Kyle Walker believes England produced a strong display against Lithuania on Sunday during the Three Lions’ 2-0 victory at Wembley.
Walker starred on the right side of Gareth Southgate’s defence against the European minnows, as England remain the only European country yet to concede in World Cup qualifying.
Posting on his personal Twitter account after the comfortable victory, Walker described the win as a “solid performance” and reminded fans that England are still top of Group F.

Goals from Jermain Defoe and Jamie Vardy gave England all three points, which now sees the Three Lions move four points clear of second-placed Slovakia after Slovenia lost to Scotland.
Walker was accompanied by Michael Keane, John Stones and Ryan Bertrand in defence and the back four were largely untroubled throughout the match as England dominated possession.
