Tottenham fullback Walker angered by Spain U21 showboating

Tottenham fullback Kyle Walker admits Spain U21's antics fired up England on Sunday.

Walker admitted England's players were conscious of being embarrassed by their opponents' showboating in the closing stages.

"It is difficult," he said. "You get frustrated sometimes but then you have to remind yourself to keep your head.

"We knew that they were going to have a lot of possession but we just had to keep focused and keep talking.

"I thought we upped it, to be fair, in the second half.

"The gaffer said at half-time we needed to press a bit more and I thought we did that and we got the goal.

"The players we've got in the dressing room are quality players and I always felt there was a goal in there somewhere.

"It's always good to get a point on the board first game and hopefully we can bounce into the next game.

"We've got good teams we're coming up against, Ukraine and Czech Republic, and we just have to keep concentrating."
