Walker told ITV: "Shocked because I know what Jack can do.

"Was I shocked because of the players he's (Southgate) brought in? No because I think they're all at a great quality and they've all had fantastic seasons. 

"I think Jack would be the first one to say he could have had a better season. I think he's come out publicly and said he could've had a better season. 

"So what does the. manager base it on? Form or people that he knows and that has had good tournaments or a good season, the season before, you know. 

"You're here on merit and I believe always it should be like that. That you're in this team because you've played well for your club which then puts you into the England fold."
