Kyle seeks repeat

Kyle Walker is looking for a repeat performance against Ukraine after playing a starring role in England’s European Under-21 Championship opener against Spain on Sunday.

The flying full-back’s raids down the right flank were a feature of England’s 1-1 draw against the pre-tournament favourites in Herning, Denmark.

Kyle, on loan at Championship winners QPR and then Villa in the Premier League last season, set-up the Three Lions’ late, late leveller when he burst into the box and found Danny Welbeck, who slotted home from close range.

“That's a big part of my game, that's what I'm here for and I hope I can continue with that into the next game,” Kyle told the fa.com's FATV.

“I thought it was a good result against Spain and if the game had have gone on a couple more minutes we might have won it.

“With the lads we have in the changing room, I think we can beat anyone and we proved that.”

Ukraine, who lost out to Czech Republic in their opener, are next up for England at Herning on Wednesday. Kick-off is 7.45pm.
