The England manager expects the Arsenal forward to feature against Scotland despite suffering an ankle injury in training on Monday.
Rumours quickly circulated that Walcott would miss both Wednesday’s England friendly and Arsenal’s opening Premier League match against Aston Villa on Saturday after hobbling out of training.

“Theo took a slight knock at the end of training,” he said. “But we believe he’ll be okay. He’s very much still in contention.”
