The England manager Roy Hodgson has revealed he has spoken to Theo Walcott after the Arsenal forward was ruled out for at least six months with a knee injury, meaning he will miss the World Cup in Brazil.
I spoke with Theo and just wanted to express my disappointment to him.
It is a blow for him personally of course, and for both Arsenal and England.
We had quite a lengthy conversation and it is such a shame that we have lost a player of his calibre for the World Cup, he has been incredibly unfortunate and we wish him a speedy recovery.
Having worked with him for two years as England Manager I know the character he has, and I know he will come back even stronger from this setback.
