The Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey was on Cloud Nine when he gave a lucky assist for Wales winning goal against Slovakia yesterday. They now top the Group after England and Russia drew in the later game, and now a win against the Three Lions will ensure their passage to the knockout stages.
Granit Xhaka is the latest name to join the ever-growing list of top midfielders at Arsenal, but could his arrival prove disastrous for Jack Wilshere
The Swiss midfielder has agreed to join the Gunners from Borussia Monchengladbach this summer in a reported £30 Million move, and many Arsenal fans will have watched the Switzerland versus Albania match yesterday to see their new arrival in action.
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.
