After Jordan Henderson’s opener, Phil Foden claimed the assists for goals from Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka either side of half-time.
Walker, who was back in the side for the final group game against Wales, played his first 90 minutes in more than two months after recovering from injury while Jack Grealish and Kalvin Phillips were second half substitutes.

Senegal’s high press made it difficult for England's defence and they were almost caught out twice by quick turnovers.
After giving the ball away, Ismaila Sarr fired over from close range and moments later, Jordan Pickford made a strong save from Boulaye Dia.
England finally put a sweeping move together in the 38th minute, that started with a neat flick from Foden and ended with Henderson turning in Jude Bellingham’s square pass.
And the second came on the stroke of half-time with another strong break from Bellingham before Foden laid a pass into Kane to score his first goal of the World Cup.
The City winger then teed up a third 10 minutes into the second half when he rode a tackle before delivering a perfect low cross for Saka to finish.
With the victory all-but secured, Foden was replaced by Etihad team-mate Grealish in the 65th-minute and Phillips came on shortly after, to ensure there was no chance of a comeback.
