England manager Fabio Capello has prased Theo Walcott after watching the Arsenal youngster’s display against Liverpool in midweek.

Capello was particularly impressed by his brilliant run to set up Emmanuel Adebayor at Anfield.

“I was delighted with the impact that Walcott made on the game – the run he made for Arsenal’s second goal was incredible,” he said.

“To go past so many players with such speed and balance is one thing, but to have the composure and awareness to pick a pass at the crucial moment showed great skill and maturity,” enthused Capello.

Walcott was an unused substitute when England lost to France in Paris.

With Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool reaching the Champions League semi-finals, the Italian believes the English players still involved will benefit from the experience.

“It is a tremendous situation for the supporters of those clubs and it shows the strength of the Premier League,” he said.

“For three sides with such contrasting styles, it is positive that English players are proving their flexibility and tactical awareness.

“Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United each play with unique style and it is promising to see English players flourishing in different roles and situations.”
