It’s fair to say Jack Wilshere is a footballer that divides opinion.

Some believe he’s the best midfielder the country has ever seen while other believe he’s one of the most over-rated stars in the Premier League.

With Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Wayne Rooney starting in the midfield role for England’s opening two matches against Russia and Wales, Wilshere had to bide his time.

But, after Roy Hodgson made six changes for the Three Lions’ final group match against Slovakia, Wilshere was given his opportunity.

A decent performance on Monday night could have seen him edge out Alli for a place in England’s starting XI in the knockout stages. However, things didn’t quite go to plan for Wilshere against the Slovaks.

The Arsenal midfielder tried to be the side’s playmaker but constantly gave the ball away as attacks broke down time and time again.

And Twitter was far from impressed with Wilshere’s insipid display and they slammed him before he was replaced by Rooney in the 56th-minute.

While Wilshere’s Euro 2016 campaign has taken a turn for the worse, it appears England’s has too.

At the time of writing, they are being held 0-0 by Slovakia in Saint Etienne while Wales hold a comfortable 3-0 lead over Russia in Toulouse.

It means the Three Lions will have to settle for a second-place finish meaning they would have to play the runner-up of Group F - which could be any of Hungary, Austria, Iceland or Portugal.

Hodgson certainly took a gamble making six changes for the match against Slovakia and it has seemed to backfire. Many England supporters will be praying that Wilshere won’t be playing any part in the latter stages of the competition.
