Spurs star: San Marino game no different to Manchester United clash
PUBLISHED: 23:48 10 October 2012
Tottenham star Kyle Walker is relishing the prospect of facing San Marino, even though they are ranked as the worst international side in the world.
Opposition that might find it hard against a Conference outfit will not prevent an England victory.
But for Walker it is another step forward in a career that saw him crowned PFA Young Player of the Year last term, whilst also cementing his place in a Tottenham team now lying fifth in the Barclays Premier League under Andre Villas-Boas.
“Who wouldn’t be excited about this?” he said.
“I’m 22 and since the age of seven playing for England is all I’ve wanted to do.
“I won’t be treating this game any differently to Manchester United or Real Madrid. It doesn’t matter to me.
“It’s a new experience. But everyone wants to do well when they play against England and seems to turn it up that extra five or 10 per cent.”
