Hodgson virus fear

http://www.ontheminute.com/news/news.php?news=40248

Roy Hodgson has spoken of his fear that Theo Walcott's virus could spread through the England squad.

Walcott was sent back to Arsenal after he fell ill earlier this week.

"Theo Walcott was the catalyst for us to seek out a contingency plan because it's some sort of virus," explained Hodgson.

"He had trained fully on Sunday and was as fit as a fiddle but was then violently sick on Monday morning and had to be sent home.

"The doctor is quite confident he will be OK, though. I can only hope nothing is going round the squad. That was why we were quite keen to get Theo home as soon as possible."
