Bilic: Walcott showed why he's playing for England and Arsenal

Croatia coach Slaven Bilic admits his defence couldn't handle the pace of England hat-trick hero Theo Walcott. "He is lightening quick and a great finisher," stated Bilic. "He scored two goals from not so easy positions, he just hit the corner. "It is hard to mark him. That is why he is an England international and why he is at Arsenal."
