Arsenal winger Theo Walcott faces three months out after dislocating his right shoulder at the end of the England training session in Berlin last night. The 19-year-old was challenged by Scott Parker and went down on the wet pitch. He was rushed to hospital in the German capital where his shoulder was put back in place.

It is Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger who will be most disappointed since it looks likely Walcott will be out for a crucial period in the Gunners' faltering Premier League campaign.

Ironically, Wenger is one of the few Premier League bosses who has not made any bones about allowing his players to travel for international duty.
