Walcott: England in good shape

Published Add your comment

Makeshift England's shock victory over Spain proved they do have the strength in depth to rival the world's best, according to Theo Walcott.

Despite being without half of their first-choice XI, England produced a magnificent backs-to-the-wall victory against the world and European champions at Wembley. Manager Fabio Capello watched a side shorn of Wayne Rooney, John Terry, Steven Gerrard, Jack Wilshere and Ashley Young lay down a marker ahead of Euro 2012.

Arsenal winger Walcott, who played the first half, said: "A lot of players who came in all took their chance."
