Kyle Walker says he will "not roll out a red carpet" for Kylian Mbappe and England will have more concerns than just one player in their World Cup quarter-final against holders France.

On the Frenchman's comments, Walker said: "That's nice to hear because he had a tough game against me.

It's not a solo sport, it's a team game.

Yes, it will be a tough game but a team cannot just be about one person," he added.

"We're playing the world champions but we are two good teams that will go toe-to-toe," Walker said.

After England's 3-0 win over Senegal in the last 16, midfielder Declan Rice said he did not think the team received the credit they deserved and Grealish agrees with his team-mate?

"But we have been scoring goals, keeping clean sheets and controlling games, so we will go into the [France] game full of confidence.".

After runs to the 2018 World Cup semi-finals and Euro 2020 final, Grealish says this England team has a "special bond" with the fans and thinks Three Lions supporters now have a belief that had been previously lacking.

"The fans are going into each game thinking this team can win whoever they play against," he said.

"No doubt this game [against France] will be biggest test yet but you're never going to get to a World Cup final without playing the best.
