Arsenal boss Wenger backs Wilshere be fit for World Cup

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted that Jack Wilshere will not be the latest England player to play through a major tournament while carrying an injury, reports the


Daily Telegraph.


Jack Wilshere


The midfielder is currently facing up to two months on the sidelines with a foot injury, which he sustained during England’s 1-0 friendly victory over Denmark on Wednesday. He played on until midway through the second half despite picking up the problem in the first period.


Wenger, who will now be without another of his key players for some important matches ahead in the coming weeks, vowed to have Wilshere fully fit for the World Cup. England manager Roy Hodgson names his squad on May 13, with their opening game against Italy taking place on June 14.


Wayne Rooney has played in the last two World Cups having suffered with injury problems, while Michael Owen was also struggling in 2006. However, Wenger insists that Wilshere will not have fitness problems in Brazil. He said: “He can have a great World Cup if all works well.


“We have 11 weeks until the end of the season and then you have still three weeks before the start of the World Cup. So it’s 14 weeks. That should be perfect.”
