LONDON (AP) -- England will be without Theo Walcott for the crucial World Cup qualifier against Montenegro on Tuesday after the Arsenal winger injured his hip and groin while training with the national team.

Walcott, who was also ruled out of Friday's qualifier against San Marino, will fly back to England on Saturday and be assessed by his club's medical staff.
