Kyle Walker makes return to action

Kyle Walker continued his rehabilitation from abdominal surgery with 67 minutes for the Tottenham U21s as they beat Manchester City U21s 2-1.

The England international was initially sidelined in March and missed the World Cup in Brazil.


The ex-Sheffield United youngster was scheduled to return over the summer and did make two appearances in Tottenham's pre-season tour of North America, however it was decided the issue was not fully addressed and that Walker should undergo the knife.

Tottenham have missed the right back as his deputy, Kyle Naughton, has also suffered his share of injury and suspension issues, while Eric Dier has shown he is not a full back despite an impressive start in that position this season.

Walker started and played over an hour as two Shaquile Coulthirst goals overcame City.

Good to be back 

Afterwards Walker tweeted: "Felt good to back on the pitch tonight with the U21s, nice to cap it with a win too.

"Thanks to the medical team, the fans, my friends and most of all my family for standing by me whilst injured. Always light at the end of the tunnel."

With games coming thick and fast Mauricio Pochettino will be glad to have Walker back in contention for selection, while Walker will have plenty of opportunity to regain match sharpness.
