Walcott confident of England U21 success at European Championships

Arsenal youngster Theo Walcott is confident England's Under 21s can win the European Championship. The 20 year old winger, left out of the starting line-up against Spain on Thursday, feels England's Under 21s have enough quality to lift the trophy.

"It's just good to be involved in the tournament and it'll be a great experience for me, with the World Cup hopefully to come," Walcott said in the Daily Star.

"I missed it a couple of years ago, so it's nice to be involved this time and I think we have the potential to win it.

"It'd be great to bring a trophy back to England."

Walcott is also excited about his partnership with Portsmouth's Glen Johnson in the England senior team.

He said: "When you can't get the ball wide so much during a game, you can sometimes go inside and create the spaces out wide for your full-back.

"It worked quiet well against Andorra - and Glen's very young as well, so hopefully it'll be a good little partnership."
