While Theo Walcott’s England teammates returned home hugely gutted after not having qualified for the knockouts in the FIFA World Cup 2014, the Arsenal winger was enjoying himself on a golf course many a mile away in Portugal.
Walcott has gone there along with his family for holidays for a brief period before he joins his club for pre season
The 23-year Old player would have definitely flown to Brazil with the Three Lions squad last month had it not been for that nasty injury that he discovered playing in the Premier League earlier this year.
That injury got him out of the game for 6 months which meant that he was not fit enough to travel to South America for the biggest FIFA tournament.
Walcott is believed to have worked very hard on his recovery and it seems that he is completely fine now. While playing golf with one of his buddies there in Portugal the other day, he didn’t have any sort of trouble in his movement.
Walcott had been having a cracker of a last season before that injury setback. By firing in 5 goals in 13 appearances, he had got his team to the top position in the league table at that point of time, but, after his exit, Arsenal couldn’t quite maintain the same rhythm and at the end, they had to fight hard to even finish 4th.
However, this season, there might be a change in Walcott’s position on the pitch. He has played as winger in most parts of his career at Arsenal so far, but, this time around, he would probably be asked to play as the main striker because of the arrival of Alexis Sanchez who is a renowned right winger and is playing some brilliant football presently.
