Outside The Zip: Who Would Theo Walcott Want To Be Stranded With?

Theo Walcott has been enjoying success in the current campaign, something he’s been struggling with for the last few years. The speedy Englishman hasn’t been able to find consistency at Arsenal as of late, which resulted in him being left out of the England squad ahead of Euro 2016. Well, he’s now back in form, scoring goals, and he even has time for some banter while playing FIFA.

When asked who he would want to be stranded on an island with, Theo’s answers will certainly make you laugh.

I’d go for Per Mertesacker just for the fact that if I’m on an island, he can reach for stuff in the tress for me. 

I’d probably get Nacho in to keep me entertained.

I’d probably go Santi for the fact that we could do skills and some two-touch… with the coconuts that Per Mertesacker has grabbed for us. 

His reasoning for including Mertesacker is brilliant. The only problem is they better hope he doesn’t have to actually jump to get the coconuts, because if he does, he’s likely not getting to them. He has a vertical of about 0.1 inches.

Entertainment from Nacho Monreal also caught me off-guard. Didn’t expect him to be the comedian in the squad, but I guess it goes to show that we don’t always know what goes on behind closed doors.

Since he only named three, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Coquelin would be the last one. The Frenchman could fight off any stray animals that might be on the island.
