England's Jack Wilshere was poor against Slovakia
Wilshere started in Three Lion's final group game against Slovakia, but managed only 56 minutes, after a lethargic, rusty display saw him replaced by Wayne Rooney. Redknapp feels as though it was that performance that has jeopardised his chances of starting again in the tournament:
Harry Redknapp believes Wilshere has blown his chance of starting again at the Euros
"I like Wilshere as a player but he had a disappointing night against Slovakia and blew his chance to force his way into Roy’s starting line-up."
After making only one start and two substitute appearances for Arsenal last term, the 24-year-old is obviously struggling with match-fitness, which begs the question, why did Roy Hodgson take him to France in the first place?
Wilshere is incredibly talented, that there can be no doubt, and has an unique knack of being able to stay on his feet in tight spaces whilst being able to break down the tightest of defences with a killer pass or a mazy dribble.
The problem is, he seems to be in no fit state to be able to perform to the standards we all know he is capable of, and Redknapp suggested to The Standard that only injuries to other players will see Wilshere in the starting lineup again at the Euros:
England's Wayne Rooney is substituted on for Jack Wilshere
"Unless there are any injuries to the players ahead of him, it is hard to see him making in-roads to the starting line-up. Dele Alli hasn’t quite done it yet, but with Wayne Rooney certain to come back into midfield and Eric Dier arguably England’s best player in the tournament so far, there’s no place for Wilshere for the time being."
England face Iceland tonight in the 8pm kick-off for a chance to play France in the quarter-final next week.
Should Wilshere have been included in Roy's squad for France?
