Wilshere near first-team Arsenal role which will aid World Cup bid

Arsene Wenger has insisted that Jack Wilshere is on course to make England’s World Cup squad, and will challenge for a first-team Arsenal role in the coming months.

The 26 year-old has suffered with a number of injury setbacks in his career thus far, but is claimed to be nearing full strength at present, and has impressed in his limited outings so far this term.

Does Wilshere walk into England set-up when fit?

Jack Wilshere is being tipped to make next summer’s World Cup squad for England, but has he shown enough for Arsenal to warrant it?

The 26 year-old is being touted for a place for Russia 2018 despite having only made three appearances this season due to struggles with injury and fitness.

Arsenal star Walcott has birthday destroyed by England snub

Arsenal forward Theo Walcott has been a surprise omission from Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the upcoming matches with Germany and Lithuania, and the manager has revealed that the news was not taken well.

Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere returns to England fold

Arsenal loanee Jack Wilshere has been selected to make his return to international action next week.

England are set to take on Scotland at Wembley on Friday evening in the World Cup 2018 group qualifiers, before taking on Spain in a friendly match the following Tuesday evening.

Should Arsenal fans worry about shredding of Walcott?

I am not going to suggest that the in form Arsenal forward Theo Walcott did well over the last week or so in the two international games he started for England, because the pacy 27-year old certainly did not have anything like the same impact for his country as we have seen him produce for Arsenal this season.

What has Walcott revealed to Arsenal rivals?

After a strong start to the season from Arsenal and in particular for Theo Walcott, the winger has managed to edge his way back into the national team squad with England. The player showed his part in the team against Malta yesterday, but he has also said some rather worrying things whilst on media duty with England.
When asked about what the team is doing to improve, Walcott is quoted in the media by saying:

“We want to make this like a club basically, that’s what we want. We want everyone to have the relationships (in the England set-up) that they have with who they’re at clubs with. That’s what we’re starting to get with this England team. I’ve probably given a few of my secrets away to my team-mates this week but it’s going to benefit England. That’s what we want, it’s all about England this week.

Spurs star heaping praise on Arsenal? The Wenger effect

Arsene Wenger has achieved some great things in the two decades that he has been the manager of Arsenal, and before to be fair as he did forge a good reputation which got him the job and he won the French Ligue 1 and the French cup with Monaco as well as two cups in Japan with Nagoya Grampus 8.

Will Wenger’s support give Arsenal help with England stars?

We will have to wait and see exactly which of the current Arsenal playing staff are going to be called up by their respective national managers for the international break after this weekend’s Premier League matches, but there are usually a fair few Gunners involved.
