I wouldn't say a blinder but he did play very well when he had the ball, what I liked was he started on the left and did well so perhaps he can be cover for both wings for us.
Walcott started off badly, a poor pass in a good position then slicing when given a free shot from eight yards. Then he got into the game, once we scored, causing havoc to the right hand side, drawing fouls from Romania, passing the ball very well, tracking back, getting in decent crosses (they could be a lot better though) and not too bad set plays, he also made runs into the box when the ball was on the other flank but they were not quite in the right area yet. Once they equalised, Walcott got the ball, cut inside, beat 4 or 5 players then tried to pass it into the net from outside the box, forcing a very good save but just a little more power and he might have scored. Then England faded and Walcott saw little of the ball, switched to the right at half time.
Then England's left back was exposed due to Adam Johnson's failure to help out while Walcott lacked any real threat due to once again not getting the ball. Dribbled well again but got few chances to pass or cross, he and a team mate made a real mess of a short corner routine. Moved up front late on, didn't get the ball but could have had a penalty when two defenders man handled him but he got away from them and the keeper was quick enough off his line to get the ball away from Walcott's feet.
All in all, good to see him play well, room for improvement in his crossing and needs to make his far post runs so he gets into shooting positions to be a threat but this will do his confidence the world of good I hope.Full post here
