JACK WILSHERE TARGETS EURO 2016 SPOT UPON RETURN FROM INJURY

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is reportedly targeting a place in England’s Euro 2016 squad after completing his comeback from injury.

The 24-year-old had been missing in action for 330 days after undergoing surgery in September for a fractured left tibia, after picking up the injury during pre-season training.


Wilshere made his first senior appearance since last season’s FA Cup final when he played the final eight minutes in the disappointing 1-1 draw at Sunderland on Sunday. The England International says he has a big week ahead of him after his Sunderland run-out, but is confident he can prove his fitness in time to be in Roy Hodgson’s squad for the summer tournament in France. There have been calls on some quarters to include him in the team while others have said the English coach should pick from the in-form active English players.

“It’s the best feeling.

“All those late nights and long days in the gym, this is when it really pays off.

“You can do all the training, you can play for the under-21s to build your fitness up, but what really matters is playing for the first team and getting back on the pitch, so I’m really happy. Continue reading JACK WILSHERE TARGETS EURO 2016 SPOT UPON RETURN FROM INJURY

Should Jack Wilshere go to Euros 2016?

The debate is raging on whether Jack Wilshere should be going to Euros 2016. The England midfielder currently playing at Arsenal has yet to kick a ball this season due to injuries. There are reports that the England manager will be interested in bringing Wilshere with him because of his experience.

However with replacements such as Danny Drinkwater available some people are calling for Wilshere to stay at home and prepare himself for next season. Indeed, it would not be fair for players such as Drinkwater to miss a place in Euros just because of Wilshere reputation.

England has enough quality players in midfield to cater for the absence of Jack Wilshere. Players such as Alli, Henderson, Dier, Barkley, Sterling, Lallana are all quality players and should be able to control the midfield whatever team England might be facing.

A fit Jack Wilshere would have certainly had his chance of making it to the finals especially with his performance during the qualifiers. Unfortunately, his form has been hindered by injuries, and he has yet to play this season for Arsenal. Continue reading Should Jack Wilshere go to Euros 2016?

Jack Wilshere continues to struggle with a lot of injuries in his career

Jack Wilshere continues to struggle with a lot of injuries in his career. The midfielder is yet to feature for Arsenal this season and doubts were growing whether he will be set for an early retirement like Abou Diaby.

The former French midfielder recently announced his retirement after several seasons of continuous struggles with injuries. Wilshere is regarded as one of the finest English talents available, but his injury record is every statistic for both club and country. Wilshere featured in only 23 appearances last season and was expected to kick on in the 2015-16 season.

Since making his professional debut for the gunners in the 2008-09 season, Wilshere has gone on to make more than 40 appearances in only one season. The 24-year-old has also been restricted to just two appearances for the England national team, who will be anxious to get him back for the Euro 2016. Wilshere is one of the important players for the national team especially after the retirements of Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard in the centre of the field. Wenger has given his support to the injury prone midfielder by stating that he is ready to give him more opportunities to prove his fitness.

Arsene Wenger major boost for Chelsea

Managing to beat a Chelsea team managed by Jose Mourinho for the first time on Sunday was a major morale booster for Arsene Wenger and his team. The Frenchman had previously failed in 13 encounters to beat Mourinho, but his team secured a 1-0 victory at the new Wembley.

This was the second consecutive Community Shield lifted by Arsenal. This is in addition to the two FA Cup titles that they have won in the last two seasons. These victories have given Arsenal a major boost in terms of confidence according to midfielder Jack Wilshere, who feels that the club can now go on and win the league title.

It has been more than a decade since the gunners last were crowned as the Premier League champions. However, they showed title winning form in the second half of last season. A run of 18 victories from the last 26 league matches meant that Arsenal finished third in the table. For a while, they appeared to have a long shot at the title. This was a tremendous improvement compared to recent seasons when Arsenal have largely been regarded as contenders only for the fourth spot. Wilshere also feels that the addition of Petr Cech is a major step towards the title. Continue reading Arsene Wenger major boost for Chelsea

Jack Wilshere is staying with Arsenal and hopes to get into the first team

Jack Wilshere is only 23 year old and has his entire career ahead of him but he has already been compared to the likes of Andres Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez.

Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus even said that Jack Wilshere is: ‘’the perfect player’’. However, even with all the praise that he has been receiving, Wilshere struggles trying to find the first team of Arsenal.

Some of the reasons of why Wilshere hasn’t been in the starting lineup of Arsene Wenger is due to injuries while other factors are simply because he hasn’t been performing at the level required to secure a spot in the main team of the Premier League club.

In this Premier League season which concluded a few weeks ago, Wilshere only managed on making 14 league appearances.

Due to the low amounts of appearances that Wilshere has been making, a string of reports and rumors have started to emerge linking the English player to clubs such as: Manchester City and Liverpool. Continue reading Jack Wilshere is staying with Arsenal and hopes to get into the first team

Jack Wilshere is eager on getting back in the pitch

The 23 year old English midfielder Jack Wilshere has been out of action since November of 2014 when he sustained an ankle injury which has forced the player to remain on the sidelines of Arsenal for the majority of the season.

 

The road to recovery of Jack Wilshere has left him out of the pitch for over 4 months but the player is slowly returning to full fitness as he has trained and made a few appearances for Arsenal’s Under-21 squad.

Jack Wilshere is happy to be able to play for the youth team of Arsenal as he is trying to get back to his form but the English player is eager on making it back to the main team of Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere said: “You can play as much as you want in the Under-21s, but you cannot get that intensity of the Premier League. In training here, the little eight-a-side and keep balls is top level, and that is what I need. Everyone looks forward to the training sessions, it is short and sharp, everyone is fighting for a position in the team and you can really tell that.”

Due to the ankle injury that Wilshere sustained a few months ago, the player has spent more time on the sidelines of Arsenal than anything else but Wilshere stated that he has been impressed by what his teammates have been accomplishing, especially after Arsenal claimed their 8th successive Premier League triumph by defeating Burnley with a scoreboard of 0-1.

Arsene Wenger confirms Jack to Spend more time in Sidelines

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger revealed a few weeks ago that Jack Wilshere was set to spend more time on the sidelines after facing a setback in his attempts to come back. Wilshere has not played for the club since November 2014.

However, Wenger revealed that the midfielder has suffered a setback and will be undergoing an ankle surgery in order to help him regain his fitness in the best possible way. Speaking ahead of the match with QPR on Wednesday night, Wenger said that he is almost sure that Wilshere will not be fit in time to face Manchester United this weekend.

Arsenal will be travelling to Old Trafford in order to take on the Red Devils in the FA Cup quarter-finals. As with defending champions of the trophy, Arsenal will be looking to put a major fight. However, they have recently been second best when it comes to matches against the big teams. The recent 2-0 win over Manchester City stands out from the crowd of mediocre performances against top teams. Wenger may decide to adopt tactics similar to those used in the win against City. This would help him overcome an injury ravaged team, which is also missing the likes of Matthew Flamini. Continue reading Arsene Wenger confirms Jack to Spend more time in Sidelines
