Walcott has been called up by Hodgson as one of his four main strikers and despite not scoring yet for Arsenal this season, his Gunners’ team-mate Oxlade-Chamberlain has backed him to play a crucial role up front.

“I think Theo has been ready for a number of years to play there. He’s someone I look up to and admire as a person and a player,” said Oxlade-Chamberlain.

“His form for club and country in his long career proves why he’s is ready, his goalscoring record proves why he is ready to play up front.

“He is a great player and poses different threats than other strikers with his ability to run in behind.

“I have no doubt Theo can play up front – or in midfield as well.”
