Jack Wilshere reacts on Twitter after being voted Goal of the Season winner

Jack Wilshere Press Conference - 18/02/2014

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere won the Goal of the Season competition.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is celebrating after winning the BBC's Goal of the Season competition.

The England star scored a sensational strike on the last day of the campaign, and was a late entry into the annual contest run by Match of the Day.

Wilshere's strike competed against Charlie Adam's long range goal versus Chelsea from his own half, and Juan Mata's volley against Liverpool.

The competition was opened up to online voting, and Arsenal fans made their collective voices heard by voting Wilshere into first place with 34 per cent of the vote, reported the BBC.

Wilshere won the prize last year for his role in a superb team goal against Norwich City, but Sunday's goal against West Brom was more individually spectacular.

The 23-year-old was delighted to win the vote, and thanked fans on Twitter for their support.

The goal and the vote win will lift Wilshere's confidence heading into next week's FA Cup Final, for which he is no guarantee to be selected for.

If he wanted to make an impression in just his second start since returning from an ankle injury, he certainly did that this weekend.
