England hoping for some payback against Italy

England’s Kyle Walker is hoping for “a little payback” against Italy on Tuesday as his side look to secure Euro 2024 qualification.

Speaking in the pre-match press conference alongside manager Gareth Southgate, Walker reflected upon that devastating night in the Euro 2020 final. However, he was optimistic ahead of the tie and his future in international football.

He said: “We fell short that night. Hopefully [this time] we can get a little bit of payback.

“We’re all trying to achieve the same thing and create a successful England team.

“There’s one of the best connections between the team and the group for many a decade.”

Walker went on to discuss the number of games they are playing with little rest and the impact this has on the side. He was also asked about the future of his space in this England side:

“We’ve got used to it [busy fixture shcedule] over a number of years, especially at club level playing every three to four days.

“Your body adapts to it. It’s not up to me to rewrite the laws.

“I can’t comment on whether it’s right or wrong. I’ll [just] always give it my all.

“I’m going to keep going forever.”
