SHOCKING Confession! City Player SECRETLY wanted to QUIT National Team! But Now He’s UNSTOPPABLE! (Details Inside)

The Unlikely Hero: Kyle Walker Silences Doubters on and off the Pitch (England’s Unsung Warrior)

 

England’s stuttering start to the Euros has everyone talking about Phil Foden, but a different Manchester City star quietly stole the show. While the nation debates Foden’s performance, Kyle Walker’s Euros journey has been a story of redemption and resilience.

 

“International Retirement? Not Today!” ([Kyle Walker quote]) Believe it or not, Walker almost wasn’t there. Twice he tried to walk away from international football, after the heartbreak of Euro 2020 and the winter World Cup in 2022. Each time, Gareth Southgate, the ever-persistent coach, convinced him to stay.

 

This unwavering faith is interesting considering Southgate dropped Walker just two years ago to test younger options. Neither Reece James nor Trent Alexander-Arnold have truly nailed down the right-back spot. Perhaps Alexander-Arnold’s shift into midfield is a testament to Walker’s continued dominance in his natural position.

Turning 34 hasn’t slowed Walker down. He captained Manchester City to new heights last season, and now brings that leadership to England. In the uninspiring 1-0 win, his pace was a constant thorn in Serbia’s side, keeping their attackers on edge.

 

But Walker’s path hasn’t been smooth. He’s faced criticism for both his on-field performances and off-field choices. A public apology for “stupid decisions” last season (regarding a child with influencer Lauryn Goodman) didn’t endear him to some City fans. His comments about Jack Grealish’s lackluster season also ruffled feathers.

 

Despite the drama, Walker remains a Southgate favorite. His critics may be vocal, but his pace is an undeniable asset, mirroring his role under Pep Guardiola at City.

 

So, as England navigates the Euros, expect Walker to be a steady presence. He may not be grabbing the headlines, but his unwavering commitment and Southgate’s trust make him a force to be reckoned with.
