The Spurs right-back will be absent for the matches with Ireland and Brazil.
England and Tottenham full-back Kyle Walker has been ruled out of the upcoming internationals with Ireland and Brazil due to injury.
The Spurs defender has returned to White Hart Lane from the Three Lions’ training facility St George’s Park as there is no chance of him playing any part in the friendlies on Wednesday and Sunday.
Walker has been vying for a place as England’s first choice right-back with Glen Johnson in recent times and missing these two fixtures will be a big blow for the 22-year-old.
The Sheffield-born youngster made his senior national debut in November 2011 in a 1-0 victory over Spain, with Walker replacing Scott Parker in the 85th minute.
The defender was still on-loan at Aston Villa at that time, during his spell away from White Hart Lane, but since returning to Spurs Walker has become recognised as one of the best full-backs in the country.
However, the former Sheffield United star has featured just four times for England since his first appearance and didn’t play any part at Euro 2012, also because of injury.
Walker has played internationally for both the under-19 and under-21 squads since rising to prominence as teenager at Bramall Lane, but what was thought to be his inevitable promotion to the senior starting XI has had several obstacles along the way.
The young defender does have six years on his positional competitor Johnson, so time is on Walker’s side even if he will have to wait at least two more matches for the next time he puts on the Three Lions shirt.
