The mother-of-three was joined at the game by Harry Maguie’s fiancée Fern Hawkins, Kieran Trippier’s wife Charlotte, Jordan Pickford’s girlfriend Megan Davison and Luke Shaw’s girlfriend Anouska Santos.

Annie donned the white jersey along with a pair of navy denim shorts and a pair of yellow trainers.  

Megan uploaded a snap of the group to her Instagram and wrote: ‘Game day #comeonengland’. 

It comes after Annie gushed Kyle was the ‘best daddy’ on Friday, days after Lauryn hit out him for ‘bullying’ their son Kairo, 14 months.

Annie shared a snap on Instagram kissing the Manchester City star, 31, and wrote: ‘Happy birthday to my fiancé and the best daddy to our three boys’.

Kyle is dad to three children, Riaan, Reign and Roman with his long-term partner Annie. 

The footballer conceived his youngest child Kairo while involved in a short relationship with Lauryn, during a temporary split from Annie in February 2020.

Last month Lauryn lashed out at Kyle after the Manchester City and England defender unveiled a pair of bespoke football boots bearing the names of each of his children – except their young son Kairo.

Kyle shared an image of the tailored Puma boots with Instagram followers.

But he sparked an outcry after followers noted that they bore the names and birthdates of Riaan, Reign and Roman while overlooking Kairo. 

Taking to Instagram, a furious Lauryn slammed Walker for using his young son as a stepping stone to attack her, while also condemning Kilner for her own perceived attacks.

Sharing a picture of Kyle’s new boots, she wrote: ‘In a time where mental health has been at the forefront showing the implications and damages it can cause. Your “fathers” latest post has absolutely shocked not only me, but everyone to the core.

‘Things posted to the internet are there forever and Kairo has been abused by you & your partner for far too long. He is 1 years old. He is an INNOCENT baby. No matter anyone’s opinion on me. Kairo has done NOTHING & he does not deserve any of this let alone publicly.’

She added: ‘I speak for the many women that are silenced. Believe me when I say, there are SO many more women in my situation. More than you could ever imagine and a LOT of women have dm’d me finding comfort in me not being silenced. They praise me for standing my own ground and not hiding Kairo.

‘Why should he be hidden? To give you a quiet life? Never. There is keeping him private for his own protection (which is needed after the lies & stories that have been sold from your partner) and then there is ignoring his existence. The latter will never happen. He is not going anywhere. Get used to it.

‘Kairo Walker. You chose me to be your mum. To fight your corner. I’ve got you son. I will NEVER let you down. Ps @pumafootball called they decided to have some morals & correct your boots .. (they should morally remove those current boots.)’

Lauryn’s supportive sister Chloe later insisted she was happy for Kyle to be excluded from her nephew’s life, but questioned the potential implications his recent post might have on Kairo as he grows older.

Addressing followers in a series of Instagram stories, she said: ‘I just think certain things should be kept private, especially when it comes to children, and we don’t particularly care if Kyle is in Kairo’s life at all.

‘I think doing what he’s done is disgraceful, I think it’s going to cause a lot of issues for Kairo when he’s older. To do it to a one-year old is vile, I don’t know how you could do that to an innocent child.’

She added: ‘I personally don’t want Kyle in Kairo’s life, but that’s my opinion. I’m obviously aware that Lauryn’s his mum and Kyle’s his dad and they will make their own decisions, but I just think that when we are adults we can make better decisions, and also I think things can be kept private.

‘I just don’t get why that had to be publicly done. He’s such a gorgeous little boy as well.’

When contacted by MailOnline, a representative for Kyle Walker declined to comment. MailOnline also contacted representative for Lauryn Goodman for comment.
