Theo Walcott and Gabriel Agbonlahor have travelled with the England Under-21 squad to Portugal ahead of their Euro 2009 qualifier in Agueda on Tuesday.

Injuries to Wayne Rooney, Michael Owen and Emile Heskey has left senior boss Steve McClaren short on attacking options for the crucial clash against Croatia the following day, with Walcott and Agbonlahor currently focusing on the under-21s.

Tottenham striker Darren Bent, who played for the under-21s two qualifying campaigns ago, is another option for McClaren after Israel´s win against Russia put England back in control as they look to reach Austria and Switzerland next summer.
