  1. I think this helps England in some ways. His presence in the team often seems to confuse the tactics. Now they can plan without him.

  2. Too bad for Theo…he seems one dimensional at times but you can’t teach pace and he has that in abundance…will be interesting to see if this can open the door for some wildcards into the squad

  3. I think Walcott is a decent player but he’s fairly easy to replace. He’s paying for the weird decision to take him when he was 17.

  4. That is good news for england i don’t know why yu are saying its blow.i don’t think roy would have selected choosen him even if he is fit he adds nothing to the national game only adds confusion to the tactics.
