Wilshire fit for World Cup says Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is confident that England star Jack Wilshere will be fully fit by the start of the World Cup campaign when England face Italy, reports Talksport.

The 22-year-old suffered a break in a foot bone while playing for his country during their home friendly win over Denmark back in March, and has been on the treatment table ever since.

The midfielder managed his first appearance since March 5th on Sunday during Arsenal’s triumph over Norwich, coming on as a second half substitute, and Wenger believes the player has just enough time to get fully fit.

Wenger said: “"How has he been this week? Good, he works hard. We have a hard session today again and he progresses. He played 30 minutes at Norwich, that was planned, he came out well.

"I think if you ask me about the World Cup, he should just have enough time to be fully fit."

Wilshere will have another opportunity to gain match time when Arsenal take on Hull in the FA Cup final at Wembley at the weekend before he joins up for England duty.

He will also have friendlies with the national side against Peru at Wembley, before Honduras and Ecuador at their pre World Cup training camp in Miami, to prepare himself for their opening game against Italy on June 14th.
