Walker cleared for Euro spot
Tottenham defender Kyle Walker has declared himself fit for this summer's European Championship after an injury scare against Fulham.
The full-back hobbled off minutes after half-time in Spurs' 2-0 win over the Cottagers on the final day of the season, having tried to play on with an ankle knock he suffered just before the break.
However, the decision to take off the 21-year-old was merely a precaution by manager Harry Redknapp and Walker himself is now talking up England's chances of doing well in the tournament in Poland and Ukraine.
The former Sheffield United youngster is desperate to lead his country to glory, having previously been on the losing side with England's Under-19s in a final back in 2009.
The PFA Young Player of the Year will find out on Wednesday afternoon whether his dream of playing at a major championships for England will come true, when new boss Roy Hodgson names his 23-man squad.
He told the Daily Star: "It is down to football and if my football ability is there and it is what he likes, then hopefully I am on the plane.
"Personally I have never worked with Roy, but I've heard very good things about him. Tactically he is more than experienced.
"I have been to the Ukraine with the Under-19s and we got to a final, where we lost to the host nation.
"Hopefully I can do that again and go a step better this time."
