A whole host of high-profile footballers have taken to social media today to pay their respects to those who have lost their lives during past wars.

Among those to pay tribute to the fallen on Remembrance Day include many former and current England internationals, such as Jack Wilshere.

The Bournemouth midfielder - on loan from Arsenal - posted a lovely tribute on Twitter but made one error that was always going to be noticed by eagle-eyed users.

It was a small and pretty insignificant error but that hasn’t stopped the 24-year-old from being trolled.

Scroll down to see Wilshere’s tweet and the replies…

Wilshere’s tweet

Can you spot the error?

Yep… that’s right. Instead of writing ‘fought’, Wilshere wrote ‘thought’. Oops.

Pretty insignificant, as we said. But here’s how Twitter has reacted…

Never mind, Jack. At least your heart was in the right place.

Wilshere is back in the England squad

Wilshere is currently playing regular first-team football with the Cherries and has regained his place in the England squad for the forthcoming matches against Scotland this evening and Spain on Tuesday.

"I missed the fight of the Premier League, being in big games and making a difference for a team," Wilshere told BBC Sport earlier this week when asked why he decided to leave the Gunners.

"I wanted to feel that again and almost fall back in love with the game.”

He added: "At the moment I am just trying to have a season where it puts me in a good position at the end of the year, that I have improved as a player and Arsenal want me back," he added.

"I could have stayed at Arsenal, been the player that comes on now and then off the bench, starts in the odd cup game, but I wanted more than that."
