Description:
Theo James Walcott (born 16 March 1989) is an English footballer who plays for Arsenal and the England national team. He is a striker who is usually deployed on the right wing. He was the subject of worldwide media attention, following his shock inclusion to the 2006 English World Cup squad.

Walcott is well known for his blistering pace, with Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola declaring that “you would need a pistol to the face to stop him.” He has been likened by Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger to Walcott's former teammate and captain, Thierry Henry. FIFA World Player of the Year winner Lionel Messi has described Walcott as "one of the most dangerous players I have ever played against."
