Walcott Makes It Two In Two

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'.

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.

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.

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.

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.
