Poor Jack Wilshere has suffered yet another crushing blow in his recovery after finding out he won’t be ready for the European Championship in Poland and Ukraine this year. Wilshere was originally said to be sidelined for five months after having surgery on his ankle for an injury he picked up during a pre-season friendly. However due to a stress fracture to a joint he was ruled out for the rest of the season.
With Wayne Rooney suspended and no apparent coach on the horizon this is just the latest dent in England’s hopes of a successful campaign. Wilshere’s performances for the Arsenal first team last season proved how accomplished he is as a player. His capability of picking a pass and distributing the ball at such a young age is nothing short of brilliant.
Last night Arsene Wenger dealt a hammer blow to Team GB Olympic football team, claiming he will not be releasing Wilshere for the games during the 2012 Olympics. Wenger stated that *The Olympics would be the worst idea for him.*
The young midfielder looks set for a huge impact on the Arsenal side once he does return and is being hailed as England’s great midfield hope and once fully fit is sure to be considered for a starting role with both Arsenal and England.
