Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright says he understands what Theo Walcott is going through. Wright's goals helped England qualify for the World Cup in France in 1998, but a hamstring injury to ruled him out of the finals. He says he feels Walcott's pain.
As a player it's devastating. I missed out on a World Cup in '98 through injury and it's something that you never truly get over.
In the end I didn't actually get to play in any but for someone like Theo who has been there but not played - but he has been there - for this one I feel he would have been ready.
