Mount, Foden, and Grealish, according to Walker, can be significant characters for England.

If Mason Mount, Phil Foden, and Jack Grealish can shine at the European Championship, Kyle Walker feels England might be on the edge of something amazing.

The Three Lions begin their Euro 2020 campaign on Sunday at Wembley against Group D rivals Croatia, as speculation grows about who Gareth Southgate will name in his starting XI.

Not only is the structure up for debate, but so are the player choices – particularly in attacking areas, where Southgate has a plethora of possibilities.

Despite having excellent seasons with their respective clubs, Grealish, Mount, and Foden are unlikely to make the cut.

Walker, on the other hand, believes that the talented trio demonstrate that English football has a bright future and that every member of Southgate’s squad will play a role in their Euro 2020 campaign, regardless of who starts the first game.

When asked if the Manchester City defender had addressed the prospect of all three players starting, he told talkSPORT: “We can’t really because it would be insulting to the other players who are here and in good form.

“The three you mentioned, I mean, it’s exciting times for English football to have them in the team, to fit them all in a squad and play them all well, and we’ll have a real chance to do something exceptional.

“However, I believe it is not about three players, four players, or the starting XI; it is about a team, and that is why Gareth has chosen the personnel he has.

“An injury, a red card, or a tactical substitute might happen at any point during the tournament, and you may emerge as a hero off the bench.

“So it’s all about remaining optimistic and ensuring that whoever is in the XI is selected… You’ll be disappointed, which is to be expected, but make sure you rally behind everyone and remember that we’re all in this together.

Hopefully, we can continue to break down the walls and stereotypes that surround us in England.
