Wilshere included in England U21 squad

Published Add your comment

Jack Wilshere has been selected for the England squad for this summer's European Under-21 Championship, according to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

Wenger has revealed that Gunners midfielder Wilshere had made Stuart Pearce's final 23-man party for the finals in Denmark. Pearce had been expected to announce his squad on June 1 but the Football Association have confirmed that may well be brought forward to Thursday afternoon.

Wenger said: "I heard he has been picked. We just have to accept and respect the choice even if we think it is the wrong decision."

Despite Wenger's opposition, Wilshere's selection is no surprise, with Pearce having included him in his provisional 40-man squad earlier this month.


 

Fellow senior international Andy Carroll was also included but there was doubt today over whether the Liverpool striker would take his place in the final 23.
