Arsenal starlet Walcott dislocates shoulder at training

Arsenal young gun Theo Walcott dislocated his shoulder at England team training, forcing him out of the friendly with Germany.

The FA confirmed the injury via a statement.

"During tonight's training session Theo Walcott dislocated his right shoulder after falling on the pitch," said the FA statement.

"Theo was taken to hospital, where he has had the shoulder put back into place.

"Theo will return to the team hotel and a decision will be made in the morning by the medical staff as to when Theo can fly home.

"Arsenal's medical staff were advised of the injury soon after the incident."

The injury comes at a bad time for Walcott's Gunners who have dropped nine points behind Chelsea and Liverpool and require all the quality in their squad to bridge the gap.

The incident is surely to leave a bitter taste in Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger's mouth who has always had an issue with players representing their country over their club.
