Arsenal starlet Jack Wilshere is poised to make a return to the England starting lineup for tonight's crucial World Cup qualifier against Poland, according to the Daily Star.

The 21-year-old was replaced by Frank Lampard for the win over Montenegro on Friday night, after a week where he made the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Roy Hodgson had reiterated that Wilshere's omission was purely based on his footballing form, not his off-the-pitch discrepancies, but there were quarters of the media that still believed he was axed due to his antics. 

Now though the youngster looks set to make a return to the starting XI to face Poland tonight, in a must-win game at Wembley that could ultimately mean the difference between qualification and failure.

Hodgson will name his starting line up at lunchtime today, with Lampard expected to drop to the bench in favour of the Arsenal man and Manchester United starlet Phil Jones set to claim the right-back spot with Kyle Walker suspended.

If Wilshere is selected, it will surely do a world of good for his confidence given the negative press he's received.
