Watch: Kyle Walker passes the ball straight out of play during England win
Kyle Walker suffered a brainfart moment during England’s 1-0 win over Croatia as he passed the ball straight out of play.
The moment occurred during the first half of Sunday’s match at Wembley as England toiled to break down a stubborn Croatian side.
Walker, the oldest man in Gareth Southgate’s squad, started the game at right-back and was looking to take his impressive form at Manchester City into the Euros.
He wouldn’t have planned what happened in the 29th minute.
Walker received the ball from goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and ran forward unchallenged.
The full-back looked to pick Kieran Trippier on the opposite flank but misjudged the position of his teammate.
As a result, the ball ran straight off the pitch for a Croatian throw-in.
Luckily, Raheem Sterling’s winner meant that it didn’t matter very much.
