FLASHING-shamed Kyle Walker has been picked for England’s Euro 2024 qualifiers against Italy and Ukraine, says boss Gareth Southgate.
The Three Lions manager revealed the decision was made after speaking to the Man City star “at length” after The Sun revealed shocking CCTV footage of the right-back.
Police launched an investigation after married Walker waved his penis intoxicated before snogging, crunching and pawing a pal’s breasts at a bar in Manchester.
His appalling antics at 5.30pm on Sunday March 5 came just 24 hours after he helped his side beat Newcastle United 2-0.
But despite the inquiry, Mr Southgate said there was “no conclusive evidence” to leave the 32-year-old out of the squad at this point.
Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, the England manager said: “We want him with us and we think it’s the right thing to do.
“When you’re an England international there’s an even higher bar to your conduct.
“It’s a complicated situation and I’ve spoken to him extensively.
“I have to be very careful not to be the moral judge of things.”
Capless Ivan Toney, 27, who is facing a six-month ban from the FA after breaking betting rules, was also called up to the 25-man squad today.
Visibly intoxicated, Walker spent 90 minutes sipping drinks and dancing dirty with girlfriends after arriving at the venue without his wife.
The group left just before 7pm to leave by minibus, but father-of-four Walker was called back to pay the £250 bill.
The player, who earns £150,000 a week, was so drunk he couldn’t pay himself so a pal helped him, CCTV showed.
Speaking of the disturbing footage, a source said: “You’re left wondering if it can get any worse if he pulls his cock out in front of the bar and the women he’s dating.
“It is deeply concerning.”
Under the Sexual Offenses Act 2003, a person commits indecent exposure when they intentionally expose their genitals – with the intention of someone seeing them and causing alarm or distress.
Outrage against public decency is a common law offense and is committed when someone does something “obscene, obscene or disgusting” in the presence of at least two members of the public.
If found guilty, she faces an unlimited prison term or an unlimited fine.
England meet at the training ground at St George’s Park on Monday, play Italy next Thursday and travel home straight after Sunday’s clash against Ukraine at Wembley.
