I’m not the biggest fan of internationals, but I have to say I am delighted that Theo got a hattrick for England in Croatia last night.
He needs to score more goals for the Arse, so getting a hattrick for England should boost his confidence. Croatia don’t lose at home so the 4-1 drubbing was a pleasant suprise. He commented on his goals:
“I tend to cross those quite a lot. So I thought I’d be a bit more greedy this time.”
He told the press that he just took his chances, after advice from David Beckham:
“Becks told me to be a bit more greedy in the box, then afterwards he said I was probably too greedy!” Walcott said.
“He has been absolutely brilliant to me and he just gave me so much confidence. He’s given me praise and it’s unbelievable coming from David.”
Theo says he’s not getting carried away though:
“I’m not going to get ahead of myself.”

Praise came from all quarters, scumbag Rooney said:
“He offers something a bit different. He is probably the quickest player I have seen.
“At this moment he is fantastic psychologically and physically.
“It is very dangerous for defenders against Walcott. At this moment, he is difficult to contain.
“That’s superb news, he did pretty well for England. But this means I’m going to have to offer him more money (laughs)!”
Great news for Walcott, lets hope he can transfer those goals to the Premiership for Arsenal!
