Sebastian Larsson felt Theo Walcott was lucky with his goal
Sunderland midfielder Sebastian Larsson has described Theo Walcott’s goal for England against Sweden as a ‘one in a thousand’ result.
The Arsenal forward struck from 20 yards to score the equaliser after Olof Mellberg’s brace had given the Swedes a two goal lead.
And the Gunners ace set up the winner for Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck with the Sunderland frustrated with his defence.
“Their equaliser (from Theo Walcott) happens one time in a thousand,” Larsson said.
“It was a shot I should have covered and it hit me and deflected past the goalkeeper.
“With the last goal (from Danny Welbeck) it’s one player against four of ours, like with the goals against Ukraine, so it is things like that which decide the outcome. We have not done well enough.”
