Harry hails 'frightening' Walcott's England selection

Harry Redknapp believes Sven-Goran Eriksson's decision to include Theo Walcott in his World Cup squad 'could be a tactical master-stroke'.

Portsmouth boss Redknapp gave the teenage sensation his first-team debut as a 16-year-old when in charge at Southampton.

Walcott's subsequent move to Arsenal had seen him slip out of the limelight with a spell in the Gunners' reserves.

But Redknapp has no doubts he will be ready to make an impact on the world's biggest stage in Germany this summer.

'I was a little surprised to see him included but the lad is a real talent,' said Redknapp. 'He has so much ability and his pace is frightening. He is quicker than anyone else I have seen.

'Seriously, the boy glides over the park. If he walked across a puddle, he wouldn't make a splash.

'He can run with the ball at tremendous speed and that can really hurt defences. Give him a bit of space and he will kill you.

'Yes, Theo is inexperienced but he is a great player to chuck on from the bench.

'He may still be a kid but he won't be daunted by mixing with the likes of Beckham and Gerrard. He is a confident lad. This could be a tactical master-stroke from Sven,' quotes The Sun.
