Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists there is no need to yet be concerned over Jack Wilshere's hopes of playing at Euro 2012 after the England midfielder suffered a setback to his recovery.

The 20-year-old was set to return from his ankle problem in early February, but felt pain when running in training earlier this week and will now have a series of consultations with specialists before deciding how to proceed.

But Wenger is not overly worried, and when asked about Euro 2012, he said: "I would not (worry) at the moment. We are now at the end of January. He has not played since summer, so for the friendly against Holland (on February 29) it is impossible."
