Theo Walcott is ready to take his anger out on Sweden on Friday after a European Under-21 Championships where he has played rather less than he would have liked and expected.
Reports in UK newspapers suggest that Walcott has had a falling-out with U21 boss Stuart Pearce. Walcott was taken off after 45 minutes of their tournament opener, then was on the bench for an hour of the victory against Spain after joining the campaign against the best wishes of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.
