Jack Wilshere has hit back regarding his England World Cup squad omission via social media, it has been
revealed by The Guardian (link below). The Arsenal midfielder, currently in talks with his club over a new deal, took to the social network after the media and the public focussed on his exclusion.

Wilshere tweeted “Think it’s about time I had my say,” Wilshere posted on his personal Twitter account (link below).
“It goes without saying that I’m naturally incredibly disappointed to have been left out of the England
squad for the World Cup.”
“I’ve felt fit, sharp and strong all season and believe I should be in the squad! And given the chance I
could have made a real impact,” the Arsenal midfielder added.
“However, I have to respect the manager’s decision and would like to wish the whole squad all the very
best for the tournament. I will always be anEngland fan and will be supporting the boys with the rest of
the nation.”

The midfielder enjoyed a run in the Arsenal side and remained fit for the majority of the season, and this
coincided with his hopes rising of returning to the England side.

Another England mainstay, Joe Hart, was also excluded from the squad, but his season on loan at West
Ham was littered with poor displays and eventually saw the stopper lose his place to Adrian.
Arsenal fans have seen the positive to Wilshere’s snub, as it means he can work on his fitness further in
order to give his all in next season’s campaign, which will be under a new manager.

Alexandre Lacazette, Hector Bellerin, Nacho Monreal, Shkodran Mustafi, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
and Laurent Koscielny are others who will not be at this summers showpiece, giving Arsenal a boost in
terms of fatigue.
