The Arsenal winger limped off during Saturday's 0-0 draw against Chelsea with a worrying hamstring injury.

Arsene Wenger confirmed after the match that Walcott would miss the rest of the season, casting doubt over his participation in Poland and Ukraine.

Walcott underwent a scan on Monday and the results have confirmed Walcott is expected to miss up to three weeks.

The England squad are scheduled to meet up for their pre-tournament training camp on May 20.

And Walcott is now virtually assured of his place on the plane to Euro 2012 after avoiding a lengthy lay-off.
