England winger Theo Walcott has said that he is confident about England's chances of securing a win over Montenegro in the crucial World Cup qualifying match. England are on the brink of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup, but they need to defeat Montenegro in order to do so. They are the main challengers for the top spot in the group. Walcott will not be involved in the match, as he is currently out with an injury. He is expected to return to first-team action in the next few weeks. He has said that it is definitely not a nice feeling to be injured and having to see important matches.

Despite the personal negativity, Walcott is hoping to be part of the 2014 World Cup with the England national team because every player wants to be at the major tournaments. England have already experienced the pain of missing out on the Euro 2008. Even though they have qualified for major tournaments apart from the Euro 2008, they have failed to progress past the quarter-finals. Roy Hodgson's team were defeated in the quarter-final stage of the last World Cup.

Recently, the English FA chairman Greg Dyke's said that it will be a long time before England think about winning the World Cup. Even though the football odds suggest they are third favourites for the tournament, both Greg Dyke and Roy Hodgson have been keen to play down and title hopes.

"I am confident… the important thing in games like this is to be confident. Everyone needs to trust each other, and that's what the manager will be saying to the players, and the players to each other. That's all it takes. Everyone wants to be at World Cups and be remembered in the history books, so everyone will want to make sure we can get the win tonight. I'd love to be out there. It's not nice to be injured, but it's just another one of those frustrating things," said Walcott.
