Walcott suffers injury on England duty


The Mirror report that Theo Walcott has suffered an injury during England training and will return to Arsenal for treatment.

The winger was set to take part in the World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro, but a thigh strain means he misses out and will be a doubt for Arsenal’s next Premier League game.

The Gunners play Reading next Saturday and an injury which has forced him out of the squad is likely to be one of those ubiquitous three week jobs.

It’s not the first time Walcott has been injured while away with England. He picked a serious shoulder problem playing with the U21s, he was stretchered off during a European qualifier against Switzerland, and suffered a broken heart when Fabio Capello left him out of the 2010 World Cup squad.

Fingers crossed it’s nothing that will keep him out for too long.
