Youngster hopes to carry international form at club level
Theo Walcott has spoken of his determination to replicate his England Under 21 form at club level with Arsenal.
The 18-year-old once again demonstrated his potential after a dazzling display against Bulgaria last Friday.
And for The Gunners he has often shown glimpses of the promise Arsene Wenger identified in him - notably his brace in the UEFA Champions League victory over Slavia Prague.
Ahead of Tuesday's encounter against Portugal, the pacey forward has praised England Under 21 boss Stuart Pearce, voicing his gratitude for the faith he has shown in him.
"I just want to do well for England and take that form back to my club," said Walcott on the FA's website.
"The boss has shown his faith in me and I want to repay that.
"He's a good coach, you can tell that from the results. Training is brilliant.
"He talks to all the players individually and you can talk to him like he's one of the lads sometimes. He's such a nice man to work with and he has the respect of all of the team."
