Robbie Fowler offered contrasting views on the Arsenal midfielders in Euro 2016.

England's Raheem Sterling and Jack Wilshere come on

Writing on Oddschecker, Robbie Fowler criticised England and Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere over his performance in the 0-0 draw with Slovakia - but said his Gunners team-mate Aaron Ramsey has been "superb" for Wales in Euro 2016 so far.

Wilshere started the Three Lions' stalemate with the Slovakians on Monday night but had minimal impact and was withdrawn for Wayne Rooney after just 56 minutes.

In the 24-year-old's defence, he missed virtually Arsenal's entire 2015-16 campaign through injury, and Fowler says that his decision making, along with his mental and physical state, was poor in Saint Etienne last night.

"Jack Wilshere just doesn’t look match fit mentally or physically," he wrote on

"Some of his decision making was poor and the decision to start with the Arsenal midfielder didn’t really pay off."

England finished second in Group B behind Wales, who cruised to a 3-0 win over Russia to win the group with six points.

Wilshere's Arsenal team-mate Ramsey opened the scoring in Toulouse last night, and Fowler says the 25-year-old midfielder has been excellent in the tournament so far.

"They were dubbed a one-man team by everyone going into this tournament but they’ve had four different goalscorers so far," the Liverpool legend added.

"And while Bale always steals the headlines, Joe Allen and Aaron Ramsey have been superb so far."

Arsenal fans will be happy for Ramsey following what was a mediocre season for the Welshman, who netted five times in 31 Premier League appearances.
