Cesc backs Arsenal pal Walcott to be among best strikers in world

Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has predicted that teammate Theo Walcott will be one of the best strikers in the world in three years' time.

The Spanish playmaker says 19-year-old Walcott has been 'transformed' by his hat trick for England against Croatia in September.

Fabregas said: "Confidence is so important. Theo is the same player, but with maybe 300 times more confidence. That makes a massive change."
