Theo Walcott has stated that he sees no reason as to why England cannot go on to win Euro 2016 after qualifying for the tournament last night following their win over San Marino.

England became the first country to qualify for the competition after securing a comfortable 6-0 victory over San Marino yesterday. Walcott himself scored twice inside 10 minutes after his introduction as a second-half substitute to keep the side’s record of winning all of their qualifying matches intact.

Despite England’s failure to win a major trophy in recent times, Walcott has put his faith in the current crop of players available to manager Roy Hodgson.

“I think this team is getting better and better, and that’s what we want to do going into the tournament next year,” stated the 26-year-old. “We’ve gone a long way towards that, so I am sure things are going to improve.

“There are big tests for us, but I believe in that dressing room. We are playing in the best league in the world, we’re improving every day, the players are playing at the top of their game.

“It’ll definitely be a big achievement if we can go far. I am sure that we can. The manager has got that in our system, that he believes in us. The belief is there, the confidence is there, so why not?”

England reached the knockout stages of the last tournament in 2012, losing against Italy on penalties after having finished top of their group.
