Wilshere remains on Olympics list

Published Add your comment

Jack Wilshere remains on Great Britain's 80-man list of contenders to feature at this summer's Olympics.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed last week that Wilshere would miss Euro 2012 after failing to recover from an ankle injury that has kept him out of the entire season and that appeared to rule him out of the Games this summer.

But Great Britain coach Stuart Pearce has confirmed he will not rule anyone out until he is satisfied they cannot play, and said: "He is on the shortlist. We will look at everyone individually and check their fitness and the medical people will speak with the clubs."
