Walker climbs our England caps list

Posted on 12 October 2016  - 11:00

Kyle Walker has climbed over Club royalty in terms of England caps won as a Spurs player after the latest round of internationals.

The full-back played in both World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovenia to move to 22 England caps.

That takes him ahead of Paul Gascoigne (21 caps), Ledley King (21), Aaron Lennon (21) and Vivian Woodward - the first Spur to be capped by England all the way back in 1903. He earned 11 caps as a Spur between 1903-1909.

Jermain Defoe earned most England caps during his time at the Club - 49 in his two spells - with Glenn Hoddle (44), Jimmy Greaves (42) and Sol Campbell (40) all earning over 40.

It's worth noting that Harry Kane (17), Dele Alli (15), Eric Dier (13) - all aged 23 and under - are quickly climbing this ladder and Danny Rose, 26, has won 10 this year alone.
