Jack Wilshere was a controversial selection in the Euro 2016 squad, but when the Three Lions were 1-0 down to Wales last week there were a number a of fans calling for his introduction.

Roy Hodgson did not call on him then, instead selecting him as a starter in last night's game with Slovakia.

It was a big chance for Wilshere to show what he could do and stake a claim for a more prominent role in the knockout rounds, but did he take it?

Wilshere would surely readily admit he did not have the best of games, and was substituted after 55 minutes for Wayne Rooney.

The Arsenal ace completed just 55 per cent of his passes, the lowest rate of any England midfielder, and did not create a single chance or attempt a shot at goal.

Defensively he attempted just one tackle, and made no interceptions.

His display was criticised by former Tottenham chairman Lord Sugar and former Spurs player Micky Hazard, who both commented via Twitter on his performance.

Former England captain Rio Ferdinand also expressed that he felt expecting a strong performance from Wilshere may have been asking too much, considering his injury troubles this past season.

Wilshere may get another chance for England this tournament, but the chances are it will be from the bench.
