England winger Theo Walcott has been ruled out of Tuesday’s World Cup qualifying clash with Poland due to a chest injury.

The Arsenal attacker was replaced by Aaron Lennon 10 minutes into England’s 5-0 win over San Marino on Friday following a challenge from goalkeeper Aldo Simoncini which Roy Hodgson later described as ‘reckless’.

The 23-year-old subsequently spent a night in hospital and will now miss out on his country’s next game in Warsaw.

Whether Walcott will miss any games for the Gunners is as yet unclear.

England top qualifying Group H with 7 points but have played a game more than their next opponents, who have four points.
