Scott Parker was man of the match and Kyle Walker earned his first cap as England toppled Spain at Wembley on Saturday.

Scott Parker was man of the match and Kyle Walker earned his first cap as England toppled Spain at Wembley on Saturday.

The midfielder was rewarded for type of all-action display we've become accustomed to in his first couple of months at Spurs.

Constantly breaking up Spanish attacks and forever chipping away at the likes of Xavi, Andres Iniesta, David Villa and David Silva, Scott received a standing ovation when he was substituted in the 85th minute.

Scott was replaced by Kyle, who helped see England home and in turn, earned his first senior cap.

In the end, Frank Lampard's close-range header after Darren Bent's header hit the post was enough for Fabio Capello's men to beat the reigning world and European champions.
