Theo Walcott has only played 13 competitive minutes since returning from his ACL injury but it’s been enough to persuade Roy Hodgson to call him up to the England squad.
The Three Lions face Slovenia on 15 November as they look to continue their perfect start to Euro 2016 qualifiers before facing Scotland in a friendly three days later.
The call-up comes a few days after Arsene Wenger gave Walcott’s inclusion his blessing.
“If he wants to go [with England], I am happy for him to go and train, and maybe get a few minutes.
“I am happy for that because it will help his development. Is he completely ready? I think it is a bit early, but to be in the squad would be good for him.”
Walcott’s inclusion takes Arsenal’s contingent to six with Calum Chambers, Kieran Gibbs, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck also on the roster.
UPDATE – Carl Jenkinson’s good form on loan at West Ham has seen him earn another call-up to the England under-21s.
