AJBW: Young Theo, The Future

Young Theo Walcott is only 17. Earlier this year, he scored on his full debut for the England Under 21 National Team after being controversially selected to the England World Cup Squad (although he never saw the field thanks to the genius named Sven).

He is getting into the Arsenal side here and there (always difficult on a team that sent 16 full internationals to the World Cup this summer), and when he does he is showing in glimpses that he may very well live up to the enormous hype which precedes him.

Last night in the Under 21 European Championship qualifier 2nd leg in Germany, Theo came on with 13 minutes to go in a tie that England led 1-0 and was very much in the balance. By full time it was 3-0 Engerland thanks to 2 goals from the 17 year old wunderkind. It only seems a matter of time before he opens his Arsenal account. Anyhow, these two goals are your Arsenal Joga Bonito Wednesday offering. Enjoy.

Another young phenom named TW.
