Theo Walcott will play as a striker for England Under-21s in their European Championship final knowing that position is his long term future. "I probably will end up being a striker," Walcott said.

"The boss at Arsenal (Arsene Wenger) said I would have probably played little bit more up front last season if I'd not got injured, like in FA Cup games and Carling Cup games.

"But I'll play anywhere as long as I'm on that pitch."
