The Arsenal and England international star Jack Wilshere is very close to a comeback from his latest injury, (caused by a bad tackle by Man United´s Paddy McNair and NOT proof that he is injury prone). But even if he features against Liverpool on Saturday and in every other game until the end of the season, including a possible two FA cup games, the central midfielder will only have made 26 appearances this season.
And that is one of the big reasons why I agree with Gunners legend and former England number one David Seaman who, as reported by the Daily Mail, has urged Wilshere to make himself available for the European under 21 championship finals in the Czech Republic this summer.
Seaman said, “He has not played a lot of football this season and, if he is fit, he should go.”
There are already various rows going on between Gareth Southgate and Premier League managers like Everton´s Martinez and the Spuds´ Pochettino, as they want their stars rested. But that does not apply to Jack. In fact he could do with more football before the start of next season.
And there could be other plus points for Wilshere. First of all, with the likes of him, Harry Kane, Ings, Berahino, Chambers, Jenkinson, Luke Shaw, Nathan Redmond, Ward-Prowse, Stones, Butland and more, England would have a great chance of winning the tournament and that could only be good for the players.
And if Ross Barkley does dodge it and Wilshere goes, which would be in the good books of Roy Hodgson when he considers the England senior team? Do you think Jack should go?
