Walcott Off To Scoring Start

Arsenal starlet, Theo Walcott, got his England Under 19's career off to a flyer, by finding the net on his debut.

The under 19's fought their way to a 3-1 victory against Slovakia at Sixfields stadium on Tuesday night.

Walcott's goal came from the spot after he, himself had been brought down. The keeper saved his first effort before the ref ordered a retake after encroachment. Walcott took his second bite of the cherry and slotted home 10 minutes from time.

England coach, Martin Hunter, praised Theo after the game.

'Walcott played very well and could have had a couple more but for some terrific goalkeeping,' Hunter said after the game. 'With his pace and ability he'll only get better and better.

'Playing in games like tonight is part and parcel of his development, we asked him to play a little differently and he adapted well.'

You're just bitter pompeyboy :-) Although I do tend to agree he may have been a little over-priced. Time will tell on that one though.

Bottomline is that if Theo had not chosen Arsenal, he would have probably end up in Chelsea in an even bigger deal as they have already decalred upfront they will match whatever bids that have gone in.
