Hodgson to defy Arsenal boss Wenger and pick Wilshere for England

Roy Hodgson is expected to ignore the appeals of Arsene Wenger and name Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere as part of his England squad to play Sweden in a friendly later this month, the Daily Mail has reported.

Wenger had previously claimed Wilshere should be left out of the international set-up for the foreseeable future in an effort to restrict the amount of football he plays so soon after returning from almost a year and a half on the sidelines through injury. Wilshere has played only a handful of first team matches and a few more U-21 games for Arsenal in the past 15 months after struggling with lingering ankle, knee and foot injuries.


Hodgson is however understood to be keen to work with Wilshere for the first time as England manager and wants to do so at the first possible opportunity, which is offered by the match with Sweden to be played in little under a week’s time.


For his part, Wilshere has avoided taking sides in the brewing row, admitting he is eager to play for England again but stressing that if it is decided he would benefit more from avoiding national team duty, he would offer no complaint.
