Former Queens Park Rangers and West Ham United winger Trevor Sinclair has suggested on social networking site Twitter that Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere should not be part of England’s Euro 2016 squad.
England coach Roy Hodgson recently told Thefa.com that he is monitoring the 24-year-old midfielder’s progress.
"We’re still monitoring Luke Shaw – I know he’s making good progress – and we’re monitoring Jack Wilshere, who’s making very good progress, but I have to accept that, for these games in March, we won’t have those players,” said Hodgson.
"Hopefully by May, when I really have to make a decision, they’ll be available for selection."
Sinclair has criticised Hodgson for his comments, and has suggested on Twitter that Wilshere should be picked only if he is in good form close to the Euros.
Wilshere is a very talented footballer, but the midfielder’s progress in recent years has been impeded by injuries.
The Englishman has not played a single competitive game this campaign due to an injury he picked up in pre-season.
It is hard to see why the Arsenal midfielder should be part of the England squad for the Euro 2016 finals, especially if he does not get enough playing time when he does return to action.
Arenal are third in the Premier League table at the moment with 51 points from 28 matches.
