Walcott unaware of match-fixing allegations

Theo Walcott told ITV News that he hadn't heard anything about a Europol claim that a Champions League match held in England had been fixed.

"It's a shame if it is found that way, but hopefully it's not," the Arsenal and England forward said.

"It's something that we don't want involved in the sport at all...it's something in the game that we need to get out."
