England/Sweden - Walcott thrilled with impact off bench

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott was delighted with the impact he had in England's 3-2 victory over Sweden.

Walcott entered as a second-half subsitute for the ineffective James Milner and was instrumental in helping England overcome a 2-1 deficit as Roy Hodgson's side fought back to beat the Swedes in a thrilling Group D encounter.

The pacy winger lashed in a 64th-minute equaliser to make it 2-2 and then provided the run and pass which set up Danny Welbeck's winner.

"It's always nice to come off the bench and show what you can do," said Walcott.

"We felt from first game (1-1 draw with France) we wanted to pick things up and to get three goals is terrific."
