Man Utd captain Neville: Arsenal winger Walcott better option than Lennon, SWP

Manchester United captain Gary Neville believes Arsenal winger Theo Walcott should have been included in England's World Cup squad.

Manchester United captain Gary Neville believes Arsenal winger Theo Walcott should have been included in England's World Cup squad.

Neville says Walcott is a better option than England's wingers Aaron Lennon, of Tottenham, and Manchester City's Shaun Wright-Phillips.

In his column for the Sunday Times of Malta: "I must admit, I did expect Walcott to be chosen in the squad because I think he is goal threat from wide positions and he's explosive. I think he potentially has more goals in him than Wright-Phillips and Lennon; he has played centre-forward in the past so it would have been another option in that position."
