Ex-Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has exposed England weak link during the Three Lions' game against Panama at the World Cup in Russia.

Wenger has identified Kyle Walker has the weak in the England starting lineup, the defender had a good season with Manchester City but he is yet to show such form at the World Cup for his country.

England coach Gareth Southgate drafted Walker to the back three with John Stones and Harry Maguire with Kieran Tripper playing from the wing –back position.

The former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes Walker is an accident waiting to happen as a centre-back.

"The point is that he's not a real defender and especially not a central defender,"

"And he can be subject to make defensive mistakes that he would not make when he plays on the right," Wenger added.

"The sacrificed player and nobody talk about him despite the fact that he's played all the games before is Dier.

"He has always played in every single game but since the start of the competition, we have not seen him.

"He can play in the middle of centre-back and he can play in midfield as well. Until now and I don't know why but he has not been used at all." Wenger told BeIN Sport.

England will play their last group match against Belgium in a bid to ascertain the Group G leader.
