Theo Walcott changed the course of this match. Is he doing the same with his Arsenal career?
In more ways than one he was the hero here in Gothenburg. On the pitch he scored one and made another to help his team come back from a goal down to beat Manchester City in their final pre-season encounter.
And then he stole the hearts of the Swedish crowd by posing for a selfie with an infant pitch invader in the closing stages.
