Theo Walcott admits he 'never quite knew what was required' of him by England manager Fabio Capello ahead of his World Cup axe.[LNB] The 22-year-old, capped 17 times for his country, did not make Capello's final cut for the showpiece tournament in South Africa last summer. [LNB]In his autobiography, Theo: Growing Up Fast, Walcott claims he did not receive enough support ahead of the competition after an injury-plagued season left him low on confidence. [LNB]"I was confused," he said. "I had been injured so much that season my confidence was fragile, but no one ever helped me. [LNB]"If you are the boss surely you want everyone playing well and you want to encourage everyone. It killed me and I felt it wasn't fair." [LNB]The Gunners youngster also recounts an incident at England's World Cup training camp, adding: "I made a run inside from my position out wide on the right. [LNB]"Suddenly Mr Capello started screaming at me at the top of his voice. 'Theo,' he was yelling, 'I will kill you if you come inside like that again'. I never quite knew what was required of me."
