England and Manchester City defender Kyle Walker has named Bayern Munich star Sadio Mané as the toughest opponent he has faced on the pitch.

“I think Neymar is a fantastic player, but I would probably say Sadio Mane. Just because he never gives you a moment’s rest on the ball,” Walker told reporters at a press conference ahead of England’s World Cup quarter-final clash with France.

“I’m not saying that the other guys that I mentioned don’t but they probably don’t defend as much as Mane does and they save their energy when they’re attacking. So for me it’d probably be Mane.”

Walker is likely to be one-on-one with Kylian Mbappé when England lock horns with France this Saturday.
