‘Walcott’s World Cup Miss, A Nightmare’

England forward Theo Walcott may never “truly get over” missing out on the World Cup in Brazil, according to former Three Lions striker Ian Wright.
Walcott is expected to be out for six months with the knee injury he suffered in Arsenal’s FA Cup win over Tottenham.
The Gunners said the 24-year-old will undergo surgery “in the near future” and ruled him out for the rest of the season and this summer’s World Cup.
“He’ll be devastated to miss a special World Cup”, Wright, 50, told BBC Sport. “With it being in Brazil – a fantastic place, a fantastic venue for the World Cup – it’s a nightmare one to miss”.
Arsenal’s second-highest goalscorer with 185 goals in 288 appearances, Wright missed out on representing England at the 1998 World Cup in France because of a hamstring injury.
