England`s Walcott to miss crucial World Cup qualifiers

London: Arsenal forward Theo Walcott will miss England`s crucial FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Montenegro and Poland as he needs to undergo an abdominal surgery.

The 24-year-old didn`t play in Arsenal`s Premier League match against Stoke Sunday despite being initially named in the team.

"Theo will be out for a few weeks. He has developed some damage to his posterior abdominal wall. It`s not a hernia but it`s a little structural problem in his abdomen," said Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.
