The Arsenal man struggled to impress against Slovakia.
Writing in The Mail, Glenn Hoddle has suggested that Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has to curb his penchant for “taking too many people on”.
The 24-year-old was handed a first start of Euro 2016 for the 0-0 draw with Slovakia, but was withdrawn shortly after half time after unimpressing.
Wilshere, who missed virtually all of Arsenal’s season through injury, had shown very promising signs of life in the Three Lions’ first two outings in the competition – a 1-1 draw with a Russia and a 2-1 win over Wales – but Hoddle says he does not understand something just yet.
“Wilshere started well but then fell into the trap of taking too many people on. He has to understand when to and when not to make that run,” Hoddle wrote in The Mail.
The Gunners ace is expected to return to the bench for Monday’s last-16 encounter with Iceland.
Then again, the simple fact that Wilshere made the squad despite barely kicking a football last season shows how highly manager Roy Hodgson rates him.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger also rates him quite highly and the Frenchman will be desperate for Wilshere to make up for lost time next term, having spent so much of his burgeoning Arsenal career on a treatment table.
