Theo Walcott has enjoyed some fantastic moments in his career.

His lightning-quick pace saw him play at the highest level for a number of years but he sadly never became what one would consider a ‘world beater’.

Despite some superb goals and valuable contributions throughout the years, he simply hasn’t hit the giddy heights that his early potential suggested he could.

Still, nearly a decade of Champions League football and over 70 Premier League goals for one of Europe’s biggest clubs suggests he was still pretty good.

Eventually, though, Walcott became more of a bit-part player at Arsenal and finally chose to move away from the Gunners in pursuit of regular first-team football.

Everton were quick to capitalise on the Englishman’s availability as they looked to add some valuable experience to their squad.

While he may not have set Merseyside alight, Walcott has hardly let his new fans down, scoring six league goals for the Toffees since his arrival.

Walcott’s time at the top level of elite football is may be starting to wind down but nothing can be taken away from what has been a more than respectable innings.

Walcott’s dream five-a-side

Throughout the years Walcott has shared a dressing with some absolute legends of the game and so it is no surprise that he took his time when naming his dream five-a-side team made up from former teammates.

Ahead of Everton’s drubbing at the hands of Tottenham, Walcott put together a rather impressive side except, for perhaps, his choice of goalkeeper.

“In goal I’d probably go for Wojciech [Szczesny]. The reason why is because he’s actually good outfield as well so I feel like he could be an extra man if we are behind. But my team isn’t going to be struggling, I don’t think.”

He then went with former England captain John Terry before naming Arsenal fan favourite Santi Cazorla in midfield.

He saved his best for last though, naming a terrifying duo of Denis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry to lead the line.

Schezny, Terry, Cazorla, Henry, Bergkamp?

They could certainly do some damage.
