In what was supposed to be the easiest last-16 tie to call, Arsenal paradoxically surprised yet predictably collapsed against the French side losing 3-1.

The quarterfinals look like a pipe-dream for the north London side now after such a abject display both collectively and individually.

Coming on in the second half, Walcott almost immediately set about creating a chance that was well fashioned but missed.

He then preceded to block a glorious opportunity for Danny Welbeck on the rebound and do little to nothing of note for the rest of the night.

Perhaps more alarmingly, it was his behaviour when leaving the pitch that will cause more concern, reportedly getting into a spate and making gestures to his own supporters.
