Walcott to miss England games with pelvic injury

England will be without Theo Walcott for the crucial World Cup

qualifier against Montenegro on Tuesday after the Arsenal winger

tore his pelvic muscle while training with the national team.

Walcott, who was also ruled out of Friday’s qualifying win over

San Marino, will fly back to England on Saturday and be assessed by

his club’s medical staff.

”Theo overstretched slightly crossing a ball and immediately

felt a slight problem in the pelvic area,” England coach Roy

Hodgson said Friday after the 8-0 win over San Marino.

”It … will keep him out on Tuesday but hopefully won’t keep

him out for much longer.”
