Arsenal teammates were delighted for Theo Walcott after his super performance in defeat at Liverpool on Tuesday night.

Kolo Toure believes the former Southampton trainee has the world at his feet.

"Theo is a good player and is improving every time," he said. "I think Theo is going to be one of the best players in England."

Emmanuel Adebayor also hailed the pacy young winger, who forced his way back into the senior England squad after also impressing in the last round against AC Milan in the San Siro.

He declared: "For a few months now Theo has been on fire. Theo is very quick and is playing some good football.

"Playing up front alongside him is brilliant."
