So we are just half an hour away from England’s opening Euro2016 match against Russia, and Arsenal’s own young lion Jack Wilshere will be praying he will have a place in the starting line-up. If not though he believes that this new young England side have more than enough quality to make their mark in the competition.
It already feels like ages since we have seen Arsenal in action, even though it was less than a month ago when the Gunners enjoyed a fantastic final day with our win over Aston Villa helping Arsenal to continue the long run of finishing above Tottenham.
I am only guessing here Arsenal fans, but I will flatter myself in believing that it is at least an educated guess that I’m making about how our Gunners will perform at Euro 2016 and not just one fueled by wild optimism and misguided faith in the talents of the Arsenal players due to be involved in the tournament.
Good evening Just Arsenal fans. We have teamed up with the Poki free online gaming website to give away an official England jersey in the coming week, and you could be the winner.
Jack Wilshere is Arsenal’s lone England representative at this summers Euro2016 tournament in France, and he is very lucky to be there considering he has only started one game for the Gunners all season. He is obviously held in high regard by Roy Hodgson on his previous form for the Three Lions, but now he has to prove that the manager’s confidence has not been misplaced.
Incoming Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is claimed to have made Jack Wilshere his top target this summer.
The midfielder is our club’s only player to earn a place in Roy Hodgson’s England squad, and impressed when coming off the bench in their last warm-up match against Portugal.
The Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is well aware of Jack Wilshere’s latent talent as a fiery midfielder, but he is worried that his long absence from the game through injury means that he will not be ready to set Europe on fire in France next month, as a lack of competitive football may be his undoing.
Does Xhaka signing mean Ramsey’s days are numbered?
It’s such an amazing feeling to have a new signing tied up so early in the transfer window. Xhaka became the third most expensive player in Arsenal history after this week’s announcement. Having spent so much money to sign him, he is undoubtedly going to be first choice in the Gunners midfield next year. Keeping in mind how indispensable Ozil has become to the team, it practically leaves only one vacant space in the central midfield triangle.
