Arsenal attacker Theo Walcott is happy for Southampton striker Ricki Lambert to lead the line for England tonight.

Lambert will start England's World Cup qualifier against Moldova.

"It is sad to see Wayne out, but it is an opportunity for someone to come in and take their chance," said ex-Saints starlet Walcott.

"Danny Welbeck has started the season well for his club and Rickie Lambert has had a great start to his England career, so the manager has some great options and I am sure he knows what to do."
