Arsenal winger Theo Walcott will be given a chance to prove himself in tonight's international friendly between England and Egypt.

The exciting 20-year old has endured a frustrating season marred by injuries but it is understood that national team boss Fabio Capello is keen to use him as a pure winger and give him the opportunity to stake his claim for a World Cup spot.

With a groin injury sidelining Tottenham's Aaron Lennon who was the frontrunner for the right wing position, it seems it is the perfect time for Walcott to give a big performance and stamp himself as a genuine World Cup contender.
