Arsenal forward Theo Walcott bagged a brace for England against San Marino after coming on as a second-half substitute in a 6-0 victory against San Marino.
Walcott took to his Instagram page to celebrate the win which means that England have now qualified for next summer’s European Championships – the first team to achieve this feat.
The challenge may well be for England to maintain their 100% record with Tuesday’s clash against Switzerland the toughest test yet for the Three Lions.
Walcott, rather interestingly, was introduced as a right winger and despite his preference to play as a central striker, he seems more comfortable on the wing.

The 26-year-old timed his runs perfectly on both occasions while making his trademark dash from out-to-in, and he was unlucky not to claim his second hat-trick for England.
