England fans slam Tottenham defender Kyle Walker-Peters for Under-21s performance

Tottenham defender Kyle Walker-Peters played 90 minutes for England’s Under-21s side on Tuesday night – and he received some harsh criticism on Twitter for his performance.

Many England fans slammed the 21-year-old right-back, as the Young Lions were beaten 2-1 at home by Germany in a friendly.

Aidy Boothroyd’s side saw their 18-game unbeaten streak come to an end and it was a night to forget for Walker-Peters.

The Spurs full-back was caught out of position for Mahmoud Dahoud’s 27th-minute opening goal, before Dominic Solanke drew England level before half-time.

Walker-Peters was then unfortunate to be involved in a head injury in the 91st minute from a corner, but play continued and Felix Uduokhai smashed in a late winner for Germany.

Walker-Peters has made just eight senior appearances for Spurs so far this season, with senior teammates Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier ahead of him.

The attack-minded right-back got a chance for some action during the international break, but was put to the test defensively against Germany.

He’s still a rising talent that is bound to make some mistakes, but he was on the end of some harsh stick midweek for his performance from football supporters.

Here are some comments from England fans on Walker-Peters:
