Arsenal ace Walcott eager to build on Euros goal

Arsenal ace Theo Walcott aims to build on his goal scoring performance for England in victory over Sweden.

Playing an active part in a major finals has eluded Walcott until now as he scored as a substitute and then set up the winner for Danny Welbeck in the 3-2 win over Sweden on Friday night.

Walcott said: "To make my first tournament performance in a high-profile match means so much to me.

"It's been a long time coming and hopefully there will be more to come from me. It certainly whets your appetite.

"It seems only the other day, rather than six years ago, that I was picked to go to the World Cup as a 17-year-old.

"Now to finally play in a major finals is a special moment and one to saviour and remember, not only for me but for my family watching back home. I hope I can build on it."
