Arsene Wenger backs Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere to earn spot in England's World Cup squad

Posted: 12 October 2017 Time: 18:15

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger feels Jack Wilshere is enjoying some of the best form of his career and expects the midfielder to be part of England’s World Cup squad.

The playmaker has only recently returned from the latest in a long line of injuries but has quickly regained the form that previously saw him win over the Gunners boss and supporters.

And while critics have suggested Wilshere may have to leave the Emirates Stadium in order to boost his chances of being called up to the Three Lions squad who will contest the Russia 2018 finals, Wenger does not believe that is the case.

"He [Wilshere] doesn't necessarily have to leave Arsenal to go to the World Cup,” said the Frenchman.

"I believe that Jack at the moment is in the best form that I have seen him for a long time.

"He is very close now to being considered like anybody else.

"I think if he keeps going like he's going at the moment, he will go to the World Cup, I'm sure.

"I don't see Jack being fully fit and not going to the World Cup.

"He played games for us already and is part of the scene and will play many more."
