Man City 'goalkeeper' Walker: Did I volunteer?

Manchester City fullback Kyle Walker says they can be happy with their 1-1 draw at Atalanta.

City battled to draw with Atalanta in the Champions League after Walker had to go in goal for the closing stages of the match.

The full-back replaced Claudio Bravo after the substitute goalkeeper was sent off during the 1-1 draw in Milan.

Bravo was shown a straight red for a sliding tackle on Josip Ilicic outside the box, having replaced first-choice keeper Ederson at half-time.

Raheem Sterling had given the Blues a 1-0 lead in the first half before Chelsea loannee Mario Pasalic equalised four minutes after the restart.

Walker said afterwards: "Did I volunteer? I think it was a bit of both, I try and sometimes banter the keepers in training but I found you sometimes have to take two touches to make a save.

"We came here for a point or victory. To come away from here with a draw is a good point."
