Arsenal's Walcott helps England sell-out Wembley

Arsenal star Theo Walcott's England heroics has seen next week's World Cup qualifier against Kazakhstan sold out at Wembley.

Coach Fabio Capello complained after the 2-2 draw with the Czech Republic that his team were better away from home and admitted they played 'with fear' in front of fans who turn on them at the first misplaced pass.

That game attracted 67,738, the rebuilt Wembley's lowest gate for a senior international, but the Football Association announced on Thursday - nine days before the Kazakhstan match - that 90,000 tickets have been sold for the game against unglamorous opponents as the 'Walcott Effect' takes hold.
