Kyle Walker completed 90 minutes for England on Sunday evening – and the Tottenham fans praised the performance of the defender on Twitter.
The 26-year-old played in England’s 2-0 victory against Lithuania in the World Cup qualifier at Wembley.
Forwards Jermain Defoe and Jamie Vardy got on the scoresheet to ensure Gareth Southgate’s side uneaten record in their group.
Walker has managed to establish himself as the first-choice right-back for both club and country in recent seasons.

As good as left-back Danny Rose progress has been at Spurs, Kyle Walker's progression on the right-hand side is so often understated.#THFC

Walker was included in Southgate’s squad after impressing for Spurs this season and has been a popular figure in Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
The powerhouse has been used as a right-back at times this season, but has mainly played in the right wing-back role for Spurs.
He has provided great athleticism on the flank and has chipped in with six assists in 32 appearances for the north London club this season.
Spurs have one of the most formidable defensive set-ups in the division and Walker is an important part of their success.
In other Tottenham news, Graeme Souness has named the player Pochettino considers the most important.
