Theo Walcott out of World Cup with knee injury

Theo Walcott

Arsenal's Theo Walcott will miss the World Cup after being ruled out for at least six months with a knee injury. 

The England forward, 24, was injured during the 2-0 FA Cup third-round victory over Tottenham on Saturday.

An Arsenal statement read:  "Theo has sustained a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee.

"He will have surgery in the near future and is expected to be out for at least six months, thus missing the rest of the season and the World Cup."

Walcott's Arsenal team-mate Aaron Ramsey  wrote on Twitter: "Gutted for Theo, he'll come back stronger after this. Been fantastic for us so far this season. Have a speedy recovery mate."

The World Cup starts on 12 June, with England's first match against Italy two days later.

Walcott has been capped 36 times by the Three Lions, scoring five goals, with England winning 27 of those matches, drawing seven and losing just twice.
