Arsenal forward Theo Walcott has been ruled out of football for at least six months with a knee injury, his club has announced.
His ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) means that an appearance at the World Cup in Brazil in June is unlikely.
The injury requires reconstructive surgery and a long period of physiotherapy to rehabilitate the knee.
Former England Michael Owen striker ruptured his ACL while playing for his country at the 2006 World Cup against Sweden.
