Arsenal winger Walcott doesn't expect England recall

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott doesn't expect to be in England's squad for the upcoming games against Slovakia and Ukraine.

Walcott, who turns 20 on Monday, admitted: "I'm not expecting to be in the England team. I've had four months out so obviously it's going to take a few more games to get match fitness and sharpness back but I feel good and I'm going to be working my hardest to get back for England.

"However there's so many other players playing well at the moment like Aaron Lennon and Shaun Wright-Phillips so they deserve their chance as well.

"If I am in, it would be brilliant, because it is an absolute honour to play for your country, but it's only Mr Capello who can decide that."
