Tottenham fullback Kyle Walker is determined to be in England's squad for the World Cup.

Barring injury or a massive drop in form, Walker would seem to be a ­shoo-in for a spot in Roy Hodgson’s Three Lions squad, where he will compete with Liverpool’s Glen Johnson for a starting place.

He said: “I could never have dreamed of playing at a World Cup finals when I was a young boy kicking a ball around in Sheffield. Playing for your country at a World Cup in Brazil – that is just an ­unbelievable prospect.

“But hopefully I can be on the plane when the manager chooses the players he wants to represent England next summer.

“Of course, I need to keep doing the business for Spurs and make sure I am in the best shape I can be.

“And if that means getting to be part of the World Cup squad, it would be amazing – a dream come true.”
