Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker hailed a "whirlwind" two years after being named man of the match on his full England debut against Sweden on Tuesday night.

Walker was playing in the npower Championship and for England Under-19s this time two years ago but the past few days have capped a meteoric rise for the 21-year-old. After coming off the bench to earn his first cap in England's shock victory over Spain on Saturday, Walker took full advantage of his first start in the 1-0 win over Sweden at Wembley.

"It's been a whirlwind of a two years for me," Walker said. "I was in the under-19 squad two years ago. I'm thankful for the opportunity I got tonight and, hopefully, I can keep going."
