Theo Walcott picks up hamstring problem during training
England boss Roy Hodgson has admitted that Arsenal winger Theo Walcott has suffered a hamstring injury during training.
The 23-year-old was made the difference in Friday night's 3-2 win over Sweden after coming on a substitute in the 60th minute for James Milner.
With the Three Lions 2-1 down, Walcott smashed hom an equaliser before setting up Danny Welbeck for the winger.
However the winger is now a major concern ahead of their final Group D match against Ukraine on Tuesday.
"Unfortunately he had a slight setback in training," boss Roy Hodgson told BBC Radio 5 Live. "He felt hamstring that kept him out last season."
