England could move into pole position to secure at least a playoff place by beating the third-placed Ukranians, and the Arsenal winger believes that nothing else will do.
"We always go in to games trying to win them," Walcott told reporters. "We don't want to go out there and try to get a draw. That's when we could be caught on the break.
"We have a lot of pace in this team. They will have to come at us and I think that could work in our favour."
England face Ukraine at 7.45pm on Tuesday.
