Arsenal attacker Theo Walcott admits he believes Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp would be the ideal England manager.

"Personally I would prefer an Englishman to manage England," said Walcott, the only Englishman in the Arsenal side which beat Steaua Bucharest this week.

"I think there are plenty of them about. Harry Redknapp for one. I was with him at Southampton and he was brilliant.

"Now he's doing really well at Portsmouth. He gets the best out of his players and that's what you need if you are England manager."
