After inspiring England to a Euro 2012 victory over Sweden in Kiev on Friday night, Walcott said that he can still fulfill the potential that saw him break into Southampton's first-team just 143 days after his 16th birthday.
"People say that I haven't really kicked on," Walcott told the Mirror. "I hadn't scored for England since my hat-trick in Croatia back in 2010, but I'm still only 23 and I've now got 26 caps.
"That's not too bad, is it? The goals will come if I am playing games. I have always had that in my locker.
