Kyle Walker admits England need a miracle to win the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
The Man City ace is expected to be a member of Gareth Southgate’s squad, having played a key role in his club’s Premier League title win.
“I hope we can go as far as we can go, but we need to be realistic,” Walker told talkSPORT. “To win the World Cup is going to be a miracle, but we have got the players to do it. A lot of us play in probably the best league in the world. “We’ve got the players to do it, but have we got the experience going further along in competitions? No we haven’t. Not in recent years.
The xx-Tottenham defender also revealed that there are a lot of good teams out there and England’s record in tournaments “has not been fantastic.” “We’ve had a lot of conversations inside the camp – England haven’t won a knockout game for God knows how many years, so for us to go there and win a knockout game, that would be a step in the right direction.”
Kyle Walker was named in the PFA’s Premier League Team of Year that was recently announced ahead of the 45th PFA Awards scheduled to hold on Sunday. The right back along with his teammates, Sergio Aguero, David Silva, De Bruyne, and Nicolas Otamendi help Man City dominate the XI with five slots.
