England fans react on twitter to Jack Wilshere's performance against Switzerland

Wilshere England

The Arsenal midfielder played in an unfamiliar holding midfield position.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere was handed the unfamiliar role of holding midfielder last night for England in their 2-0 win over Switzerland in Basel.

England manager Roy Hodgson decided to adopt a formation which had a diamond in the middle of the park - with Wilshere at the base, sitting in front of the back four.

Several people had their view on Wilshere's performance in the position. Some suggested that Wilshere can become a very accomplished player in the role if he plays it more often - whilst others may think it limits him somewhat given that he is a fan of taking on players in the middle of the park, being more of a creator rather than someone who shields the back line.

The reaction from people on twitter seemed to be more negative than positive, but amongst many sections of the media there was praise for him. Some were positive about the Arsenal man's performance, whilst others raised several question marks.

Here is a small sample of what was said by the fans:
