'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Walcott Makes It Two In Two

Theo Walcott has continued his amazing start to the season by scoring in the England under 21's victory over Switzerland.

A few football pundits have feared the worst for Walcott since his move to Arsenal, many believing that Theo would not feature much this season. But after making a spectacular league debut against Aston Villa on the opening day of the season, Walcott has gone from strength to strength.

The young Englishman scored on his under 21's debut with a goal that gave they young lions a vital victory, well last night he was at it again.

England beat their Swiss counterparts 3-2 in a nail biter in which Walcott scored a beauty.

Theo and ex-Gooner David Bentley combined in a move and the climax saw Walcott lift the ball over the Switzerland keeper from the edge of box.

David Nugent & James Milner were the other scorers for England but that's for another site to report.

Well done Theo, much more of this and you'll be back in the full set up before you can say 'lasagne'.

fantastic. absolutely brilliant goal by theo and i hope to see more of this in the premiership. looks like if he carries this form with him he could be in contention to a call up soon.

Yes Theo did score on his debut, but England didn't win the game - sorry to correct you, but it was a 2-2 draw with Moldova. Great goal by Theo - let's hope he can get his first for us soon!

You're thinking about the game they played a few weeks ago...the Swiss game was played today, around the same time as the Euro '08 qualifying fixtures.

Although I am a Tottenham supporter I am also an England supporter and if Theo keeps this up he is going to be a valuable asset to England in the near future....good to see.
sidyid
brilliant goal and am delighted to see Theo doing well. I hope to see him starting more under AW and with Baptista and Gallas he can only go from strength to strength with that level of quality to train and play with every day

I know it is premature to say,but Wenger did state last Christmas that he could make Walcott the best player in the world by the time he is 21.If he continues progressing this fast then i will have to start belieing him because he is not just about pace and close-control like lennon or SWP,he is a fantastically well rounded.
Mikec
Funny you say that sidyid...I find myself rooting quite a bit for Aaron Lennon whenever I see him play. I'm a sucker for young players with tons of pace, and he's a lot of fun to watch even when donning his Spurs colours.

Gooner-Pete, check out the article title!! :P

This boy is just gonna go from strength to strength. Watched the England highlights last night (thought the France game was a much better choice, guess what? I was right) and it looks as though Steve "I'm brilliant me" Gerrard got over run by the Macedonians. Yeah Stevie, world class mate. Who are you gonna blame for that? The mascot?

I've just seen that Chelski, not satisfied with having already shifted the boundaries of class and decency this week, are talking about how they're watching Niklas Bendtner. Chelsea Football Club is gone forever.
Little Dutch
Like Little Dutch, I was very disappointed in SG remarks; I wonder if in the very near future he may have to eat his words. Theo is just a very nice young man with class just like T. H. I too like Lennon even though he is a spud player, but England's performance is still missing a vital link and in time all will see that link will be Theo.
alwaysgunner
lets not rush him, Sven did that and didn't play him, what a fool. The kid has talent beyond Rooney and lennon ( have to admit i like him too ) , but lets not put the huge pressure on his young shoulders just yet, let him cook slowly and bring him to the boil when he is good and ready. and who better to do that then Monsieur Wenger :)
PUREGOLD
I'm happy to see Theo in the Under 21's for the next 12-18 months, it will don him no harm what-so-ever. He will be used as a very attacking substitute this season, hopefully getting between 20-30 minutes per game & getting 90 minutes in the FA & Carling cups. Next season we'll see the full power of Walcott.
Rocky7
yes rocky you have to go with wenger that he knows how to nurture a player, but like Fabregas, Walcotts time may come quicker then we expect, as did Fabregas. time will show us what will be, but i think we have a very exciting talent in the making.
PUREGOLD
Was brought to the full squad too soon. But now proving his worth and he will be back with the full squad in the future.
Tierney
Theo Walcott what a talent!! I hope the young lad will prove it this season both in The Premiership and Champions League!!!!!!
BerNic
You can't keep a quality player down! Well done Theo!
sandgroanun
The future's bright, the future's Walcott
absolutelyfabregas
Walcott, Eboue, Fabregas, Merida, van Persie, Flamini, Denilson the future's looking good for us gooners
Tugboat
Gunner-pete was right, Theo did score on his u21 debut but it was a 2-2 draw with Moldova not in a victory as the article says. He also scored a wonderful goal against switzerland on wednesday night & this time they did win. Lets hope he can get some playing time with arsenal because as much as I like rosicky he doesnt like playing on the wings & walcott can make a much bigger impression there. Anyone who has watched rosicky over the past few years knows that all his best football comes when he plays in the centre but at arsenal that will never happen.
