England international Theo Walcott has been one of the high-fliers for Arsenal this term but he looked his mostly-usual self when he played for the Three Lions.
The attacker struggled to get involved in their win over Malta as he found himself bypassed by his other team mates and compatriot – he ended the game as one of the lowest rated players.
He looked lost at times, and had terrible positioning. However, he forced an execellent save from Malta keeper, Andrew Hogg, but for the most part, he was ineffective
Here’s how the main papers and websites rated his performance.
The People’s Express were surely smoking something when they watched the game.
All scores out of 10. Where a website gave ratings out of 5, these have simply been doubled to keep stats uniform.
