Kyle Walker went through all the emotions back on England duty against Holland.

The highs were certainly his performance, assist for England’s goal and, as he explained, playing for his country alongside his Spurs team-mates.

However, the low was certainly the 2-1 loss as Holland took the spoils in Tuesday night’s friendly.

“It’s football, it’s highs and lows and it was one of those games,” said Kyle, who earned his 14th cap. “It’s a disappointment but we move on.

“It’s always great to play for my country and it was nice to get an assist but the result is the main thing. We’ll try to put that right next time.”

Kyle was one of five Spurs players to be capped on the night. He started alongside fellow full-back Danny Rose with Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Harry Kane all late substitutions as England chased the game.

Kyle missed out when Dele, Eric, Harry and Danny helped England to a memorable 3-2 victory against Germany on Saturday yet he’s relished every moment of this latest international break with his team-mates.

“It’s fantastic to play alongside your mates who you play with every day,” he added. “It makes you feel at home, makes you feel confident and full credit to all the lads and the gaffer for getting us here.

“The win against Germany was special and I would have loved to have been part of it. Credit where credit’s due. The lads came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 and Eric grabbed the winner - that summed up his season really!”
