England winger Theo Walcott refutes the suggestion he "has not kicked on" since scoring a stunning hat-trick against Croatia four years ago in a 2010 World Cup qualifier in Zagreb.
But Walcott admits there is still "a lot more to come" from him six years after becoming England's youngest ever player at 17 years and 75 days old. The Arsenal player came off the bench against Sweden to score a second-half equaliser and lay on the winner for Danny Welbeck in a 3-2 success.
Walcott said: "People say I've not kicked on but, being only 23 and with 26 caps under my belt, I'd say it has not been too bad from my point of view. There is still a lot to come but at 23 I'm getting a bit more experienced and I'm featuring in this tournament as well. Hopefully there will be a lot more to come from me and I can keep clocking those caps up."
