Fans want Walcott to start

Published Add your comment

Theo Walcott should be in the England to face Sweden later this evening, according to participants in a GiveMeFootball poll.

Approximately 1000 football fans took part in the poll conducted by GMF and a whopping 92 per cent majority thought the Arsenal winger should be chosen to start by manager Roy Hodgson.

The 23-year-old was confined to the bench in the opener against France and only managed to get a couple of minutes in the closing stages of the 1-1 draw.

Under the previous Three Lions boss, Fabio Capello, Walcott was in the starting XI more often than not, but Manchester City’s James Milner now appears to be Hodgson’s preference for the berth out wide on the right.

Media reports this morning have suggested Walcott will once again be amongst the substitutes, along with Gunners teammate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

A win will be crucial for England if they are to make it out of the Group D and Oxlade-Chamberlain is expected to be replaced by Andy Carroll, who will partner Danny Welbeck up front.

Walcott is likely to make an appearance from the bench and nearly 100 football fans will be hoping for a chance to say, “I told you so”.
