Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere was pictured enjoying a short break in Dubai as he begins his recovery from the injury suffered on international duty with England in midweek.
The 22-year-old was ruled out of action for six weeks after suffering a small fracture in his foot following a 50-50 tackle with Liverpool defender Daniel Agger in Wednesday's 1-0 friendly victory over Denmark at Wembley.
Wilshere returned to the field soon after the incident midway through the first-half, but was later replaced by Adam Lallana when he suffered further discomfort after the interval.
Although initial scans revealed only minor bruising, it was later discovered that the injury was rather more serious, after the Arsenal star underwent further testing upon his return to north London.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger confirmed on Friday that Wilshere would be taking some time away from football after confirming that he was "feeling down" in the aftermath of his latest setback, which raises some doubts over his availability for the World Cup in Brazil this summer.
The injury-plagued star didn't appear too concerned, though, as he posed for a photograph with fellow holidaymakers at the Blue Marlin Ibiza beach club in Dubai at the weekend.
