England fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to share their opinion of Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere’s display against Australia.
The Arsenal star was handed a starting place for the warm up clash against Australia at the Stadium of Light on Friday.
There are doubts about whether he should be part of the final squad that travels to Euro 2016 this summer, given he missed nearly all of this past season through injury.

These warm up games are his opportunity to prove his fitness to England manager Roy Hodgson and secure his place on the plane to France.
In a 45 minute display he did his chances no harm either, looking assured in the defensive midfield role for the side.

England fans were impressed with his performance too, as they shared their views of his display on Twitter.
Wilshere by far our best technical player!— Purk (@LiamPurkiss) May 27, 2016
It's Jack Wilshere FC, not England.— Joga (@TakeaBowPires) May 27, 2016
Really fluent performance so far. Everybody actually seems to be on the same page for once Wilshere class as well— Marlos (@mattgeorgiou45) May 27, 2016
Jack Wilshere is a joke too.— Calum (@CalumNimmo) May 27, 2016
When Wilshere is fit, he is a lovely football player to watch— Jonty. (@jontybird_9) May 27, 2016
Wilshere is by far England's best midfielder. Henderson, Drinkwater, Milner, Lallana etc all very average. Rooney needed in midfield.— Hassan (@Bxstian) May 27, 2016
Don't care what anyone says, a fully fit Jack Wilshere (I know it's rare) walks into the England starting XI.— Brad Roberts (@bradleyrobertss) May 27, 2016
If you think Wilshere shouldn't be in the England squad you don't understand football, simple.— Matt (@MattRiverss) May 27, 2016
Seeing a fit wilshere bopping it about makes me happy. People still saying he shouldn't be on the plane— Harrison O'Brien (@harrison_obrien) May 27, 2016
Wilshere playing next to Drinkwater and Henderson is unfair. He makes them look so average— #M7 (@mrsdepay_) May 27, 2016
England manager Roy Hodgson
It will now be interesting to see if Wilshere is in the final squad that Hodgson will announce at the end of the month.
There is no denying his quality, but the England boss will surely be considering whether he can risk having a potential injury risk in his selection.
