Theo Walcott is still struggling to live up to the £16 million price tag that Arsenal paid to prise the pacy winger away from Southampton in 2006. Walcott was just a fresh faced 16-year-old at the time, but now aged 20, Walcott still hasn't cemented a regular starting place in Arsene Wenger's Gunners line-up.

It won't be Walcott's first World Cup - then England boss Sven Goran Eriksson took the young winger to Germany in 2006 instead of Jermain Defoe, but didn't hand the youngster a single minute on the pitch.

Walcott became the youngest ever player to score a hat-trick for England when he helped the Three Lions win in Croatia, a country that had proved a difficult place to get a result previously.

Did you know?

His family made a cameo appearance in the 2007 film Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, but Walcott's commitments to Arsenal meant he missed out.
