Theo Walcott

FABIO CAPELLO hailed Theo Walcott as world class for his hat-trick heroics against Croatia.

Walcott's goals put England firmly on the road to qualification for the 2010 World Cup.

And Capello said: "When he plays like this it's fantastic. He was very dangerous for their defenders and when you are facing someone like Walcott it is not easy with his pace."

Walcott, 19, blasted the first competitive England hat-trick since Michael Owen destroyed Germany seven years ago.

But boss Capello warned: "After Andorra I said he would play fantastic games but he would not play at the same level all the games.

"He's very young and you have to help him. And when he doesn't play so well, we must support him."

Wayne Rooney made it 3-0 as England roared to the top of Group Six with two wins out of two.
