Arsenal starlet Walcott enjoys scaring bullies

Arsenal starlet Theo Walcott is adamant he won't be kicked out of the game.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger was furious with the treatment Walcott received during Wednesday's 1-1 Champions League Group G draw with Dynamo Kiev.

Wenger accused Kiev skipper Andriy Nesmachniy of trying to 'destroy' his young winger and reckoned the full-back could have been sent off on THREE occasions.

Frontman Walcott is in line to face Nesmachniy again in November and then next April when England take on the Ukraine in a World Cup qualifier at Wembley.

But far from fearing another kicking, Walcott can't wait for the rematch.

The 19-year-old said: "It's a nice feeling when a defender is scared of you straight away.

"It always puts a smile on my face to think I'm going to win the battle.

"I got kicked a few times in Kiev but I got up and got on with it.

"I just love playing for this club and for my country."
