Walcott dislocates shoulder

Published Add your comment

Theo Walcott has been ruled out of England's friendly with Germany in Berlin on Wednesday after dislocating his shoulder in training.

The Arsenal youngster was taken to hospital where the shoulder was put back into place.

"Our priority is Theo and making him as comfortable as possible before he returns to England," England boss Fabio Capello said. "We are all very disappointed but the important thing is for Theo to travel home and make a quick recovery."

A decision will be taken on Wednesday morning over when Walcott will return to England.

Arsenal have been kept fully informed about the 19-year-old's treatment, with Capello naturally disappointed.
