Walcott - I'll be Ready to Go backposted on Mon, 04 Jun at 19:06
Roy Hodgson has already seen four members of his original 23-man squad ruled out of the European Championship after Gary Cahill, Gareth Barry, Frank Lampard and John Ruddy picked up injuries.
Several other members of the squad have also been carrying knocks, including Walcott, and the Arsenal wide man does not want to think about joining the list of absentees.
"We try not to think about these injuries because ever since I had my shoulder operation, if I tend to think about injuries then I'll get injured myself," said Walcott, who had surgery on his shoulder in 2008.
"So I think the most important thing is everyone trusts each other and trains well.
"A hamstring injury's a bit of a pain in the backside to be honest. But I'm training really hard and looking after myself."
Theo Walcott Quotes of the week
"We've been very unlucky, but with the players that have come in for the players who had the injuries they're always going to do very well and be very positive."
Regarding his own fitness, the 23-year-old: "I'm starting to get there. A hamstring injury's a bit of a pain in the backside to be honest. But I'm training really hard and looking after myself.
"The good thing is that I'm not trying to kill myself before the tournament as well and I'm starting to ease my way back into things.
"I'm sure, come the tournament, I'll be ready to go."
Walcott has featured as a substitute in Hodgson's two friendlies in charge against Norway and Belgium, and he is happy to take up whatever role is required of him.
"If you come off the bench as an attacking player, you want to make a difference," he said.
"Hopefully, we've given that sort of option to the manager if needed. But we'll train hard and just see if we can get in the starting line-up."
