Just like with his lack of appearances in the starting line up for Arsenal since he finally recovered from a long and frustrating spell on the side lines with injury, Theo Walcott must be scrathing his head right now and wondering what he needs to do to force his way into the England team.
Despite the fleet footed Gunner showing some real class and scoring two goals in the brief amount of time that he was given in San Marino on Saturday night, Roy Hodgson has decided not to give the Gunner a go from the start for the Euro qualifier against Switzerland at Wembley tonight.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain does keep his place from the start though, which is only fair after the dynamic young player also had a great game and provided the assist for Ross Barkley´s goal. Harry Kane drops to the bench but it is Sterling rather than Walcott that replaces him.
The other Arsenal player set to start tonight is Santi Cazorla and it looks to me as though the Spain manager Vicente Del Bosque is going to try the little magician in his new deeper midfield role, so that will be interesting. Let´s wish them well and hope that Arsenal get all our players back without a scratch over the next day or two.
