Arsenal forward Theo Walcott has said that Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney's head injury is like something from a horror film, and that the entire England squad was shocked to see the extent of the injury.

According to the Mirror, Manchester United striker Rooney is out of England's World Cup double headers with Moldova and Ukraine after suffering a huge gash to his head the size of a bottle in a terrifying training ground accident.

Pictures of the injury taken on a mobile phone are doing the rounds in the England camp, which is now facing a striker crisis with Rooney missing and Daniel Sturridge also struggling with a thigh problem, the report said.

Walcott said that he had seen the actual injury and it was not a nice sight, adding that it was a very, very big gash. (ANI)
