Antoine Griezmann has his very own FIFA 17 card and it’s absolutely incredible
Calum Chambers and Jack Wilshere’s Arsenal careers haven’t quite turned out as planned.
While Chambers could benefit from a loan move to Middlesbrough, Wilshere’s switch to Bournemouth hints at signalling the beginning of the end for his time at the Emirates.

Arsenal fans will never forget Wilshere’s performance as a 19-year-old against Barcelona in 2011. He showed the hallmarks of a player who could develop into one of football’s finest centre midfielders.
But five years on and Wilshere has regressed. Injuries, as well as a questionable attitude, have curtailed his development.

So when Arsenal will be taking on Sunderland on Saturday lunchtime, Chambers and Wilshere will be preparing to go head-to-head at the Riverside Stadium.
Both Arsenal loanees have impressed at their respective clubs but they’ll have to put pleasantries to one side tomorrow.
The hosts are in desperate need of three points, having lost four of their past six games, while Wilshere will be hoping to help the Cherries continue their four-game unbeaten run.
Chambers trolled Wilshere
Before Wilshere and Chambers face one another, the former Southampton defender aimed a cheeky dig at the 24-year-old on Instagram.
Wilshere posted a picture of himself in training with the caption: “Train like you play”.
Check out Chambers’ brilliant response below.
Well played, Chambo.
Rare 90 minutes
Wilshere completed 90 minutes for the first time in more than two years in Bournemouth’s 0-0 draw against Tottenham on Saturday.
He found himself slipping down the pecking order at Arsenal with the arrivals on Mohamed Elneny and Granit Xhaka, but is now enjoying a run of games that can only help his career.
Wilshere has benefited from changing his style and being used as a No. 10 under Eddie Howe. He’s more measured with his approach to tackling and is keeping things simple.
This will, of course, please Arsenal Wenger, who just wants to see the England international get some minutes under his belt.
"I hope personally that [Wilshere] stays his whole career here,” Wenger said in September, per Sky Sports.
“Jack is a world-class player. He doesn't have to show me he has the quality to play at Bournemouth, he just needs to be back at a competitive level."
