Theo Walcott says Arsenal's players celebrated their penalty shootout victory over Roma like they'd won the World Cup.

“For such a young team who haven't experienced it to win on penalties just shows the character we have got in the whole side,” added the 19-year-old. “You should have been in the dressing room after the game — it was like we had just won the World Cup Final.

“The atmosphere is brilliant, even though there are all sorts of nationalities in there, we all get along and we're like family. They are just a brilliant bunch of lads to play with. We seem to have had our bad spell and now hopefully we can have a good one and push for those Champions League spots.

“But the main thing is now Saturday and the Premier League. We have to concentrate on that and forget about this.”
