Arsenal forward Theo Walcott could not hide his anticipation for the Euro 2016 qualifiers as he made his return to full training with the England squad on Friday.
The 25-year old has not played for the Three Lions for over a year after being sidelined due to injury. He sustained the injury back in January in the 2-0 FA Cup third round triumph over bitter North London rivals Totttenham.
Walcott was in high spirits as he trained with England at St George’s Park: And what other way to celebrate his return than to tweet to his followers.
His tweet read:
“Nice to be back with the England team and looking forward to being at Wembley tomorrow!”
Have a look:

Although Theo has only featured once since returning from injury – as a second half substitute in the 3-0 win over Burnley earlier in November – Roy Hodgson has been closely monitoring his recovery by organizing extra training sessions to quicken Theo’s return to full fitness.
Walcott has 36 caps for England with 5 goals to his name, his most memorable display being a hat-trick in the 5-1 hammering of Croatia in 2010.
England host Slovenia on Saturday at 5PM GMT.
Welcome back Theo, See you in Wembley!
