Arsenal players Theo Walcott and Kieran Gibbs named in England squad

Fabio Capello has selected both Theo Walcott and Kieran Gibbs to be part of the England squad for Euro 2012 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Switzerland this week.

Gibbs will most likely serve as backup for left back Ashley Cole, while Walcott has a great chance to start based on his recent form.  Manchester City's Adam Johnson and Aston Villa's Ashley Young will also be vying for starts at Walcott's right wing position.

Best of luck to both Gibbs and Walcott; return home intact, please.
