Theo Walcott has been substituted off after 9 minutes during England’s World Cup qualifier with San Marino.
The pacy attacker started the match with fellow Arsenal team mate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the opposite wing, and after a collision with the San Marino goalkeeper Simoncini in the fourth minute, he had to be substituted.
The incident looked a painful one with Walcott seeming concussed. His injury status is so far unknown, with Aaron Lennon replacing the Arsenal man.
Hodgson was outraged with the collision as he looked on worryingly at Walcott who appeared to have been knocked out. Hopefully the diagnosis is nothing too serious and he will be available to play against Norwich in just over a weeks time.
