Arsenal star Walcott proud to produce 'Ronaldo goal' June 18, 2012, 9:05 pm

Arsenal ace Theo Walcott says he 'did a Ronaldo' with his England goal on Friday.

Walcott's effort was reminiscent of Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.

He grinned: "I've never had a strike from distance like that so I surprised myself.

"I didn't know I had the Ronaldo dip in me to be honest.

"I was really shocked. I even thought it took a deflection at first but I have watched it back now and it didn't. It was only my third touch and it just shows you must have the confidence to shoot from distance.

"That was my job - to be on the edge of the box, to sort of scout that area and luckily it came out to me and I had a swing at it."
