Parker's praise for Walker

Kyle Walker caught Scott Parker's eye before his cracker against Arsenal.

Kyle Walker caught Scott Parker's eye before his cracker against Arsenal.

In fine form this season, full-back Kyle secured his place in Tottenham folklore with a stunning winner against the Gunners on October 2.

Arsenal levelled Rafa van der Vaart's opener at the start of the second half but as we started regain the initiative, Kyle hit a thunderbolt from 30 yards that won the match - his first goal for us in his first North London derby.

Kyle's performances earned a call into the England squad alongside Scott last week.

Unfortunately, he didn't feature but Scott played in the 2-2 draw in Montenegro on Friday as the Three Lions secured a place in next summer's Euro 2012 finals.

"Since I have been at Tottenham, Kyle has really stood out," said Scott, who followed his fine display against Arsenal with another for England.

"He is a fantastic player. He is young. He has bundles of energy and is very quick.

"He scored a very good goal last weekend but his performances before that were really good."
