Walcott injury 'a big blow for England'

Theo Walcott being ruled out of the World Cup with a knee injury is a "big, big blow" for England, according to former Arsenal and Three Lions striker Ian Wright.

Walcott, 24, ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee during Arsenal's 2-0 FA Cup third-round victory over Tottenham on Saturday.

Wright, who never played at a World Cup finals, says Walcott will be devastated to miss what will be a "special" tournament in Brazil.
