Another young English talent was becoming a household name. Theo Walcott featured on the FIFA 10 cover alongside fellow countrymen Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard.

The FIFA curse hit the featured youngster very hard. His 09/10 season was plagued with injuries. He suffered injuries to his shoulder, back, knee and hamstring, limiting his starts in an Arsenal shirt to only 15 and leaving him on the sidelines for 119 combined days.
