Theo Walcott is a new generation of English footballers representing his squad in Euro 2012. He arrives at a time when Hodgson appears to be phasing out the older players and phasing in new ones before, during, and after Euro 2012.

Walcott is a great choice taking into account his youth and agility which can surprise an opposing player according to ESPN Soccernet. He is strong with a good head on his shoulders and is able to score hat tricks like the one against Croatia in the preparation for the 2012 FIFA World Cup.

During the 2011-2012 Premier League season, Walcott scored eight goals within 35 matches. He also managed to do 76 shots within 35 matches.

Even though Walcott suffered a hamstring injury which left him out for the remaining 2011-2012 Premier League season, he appears to be content training with England for Euro 2012.

It remains to be seen what will transpire.
