Walcott inspires England victory

Published Add your comment

Theo Walcott came off the bench in Gothenburg to help send England Under-21s into the semi-finals of the European Championship by defeating Spain 2-0.

Under-21 boss Stuart Pearce controversially dropped the Arsenal winger at Gamla Ullevi but England were ahead five minutes after he came on, with Fraizer Campbell netting.

Walcott then set up the second goal for James Milner, who had a penalty saved in the first half.
