Theo Walcott has been sent back to Arsenal with manager Roy Hodgson admitting it is not going to make him very popular with Arsene Wenger.

The FA have confirmed Walcott has been ruled out of Tuesday's trip to Poland after being clattered by San Marino goalkeeper Aldo Simoncini at Wembley on Friday.

"It was a particularly brutal challenge on Theo that has caused him quite a considerable injury," said Hodgson. "It's never very satisfying as a national coach when a player who has been on international duty has to go back to his club with a serious injury."
