Who is Luckott? It’s a term I coined for Theo Walcott on playing for England and making the history books.
Being chosen by Sven-Goran Eriksson is already a big winner for this kid let alone enter the history books and get past Wayne Rooney’s record of 17 years and 111 days when he appeared against Australia in February of 2003.
Theo Walcott luckily became the youngest player in England’s history on the 65th minute of their friendly against Hungary at Old Trafford to play at 17 years and 75 days.
Rooney’s status was already cemented when he entered the record books by playing in the English Premiership unlike Walcott who have been the invisible man of Arsenal all this time.
What more could Walcott ask?
Luckott is going to get luckier since he might just become the second youngest player in FIFA World Cup Finals behind only to Norman Whiteside of Northern Ireland whose record sits at 17 years and 41 days.
I can’t figure out how luck could bite players in the World Cup Finals. Luck does happen but to the best players on this planet especially at a level like the World Cup Finals. But a young kid who has not proven anything yet?
Luckott he is…[tags]FIFA World Cup, FIFA World Cup 2006, Soccer, Football[/tags]
