Wilshere ‘loves playing for England’

Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere has insisted there’s no question of a lack of passion after the Three Lions’ World Cup exit, Sky Sports has reported.

Wilshere said following England’s goalless draw with Costa Rica that the game provided the players with a chance to show what wearing the national team colours meant after two defeats in their previous two games.


England bowed out of the World Cup following the draw with the Central Americans, failing to win a game.


“We are professionals,” Wilshere said. “We had to play for a bit of pride and show we really do love playing for the country. We showed character to deal with the heat and not let our heads go down.


“We were nervous in the first-half. It was important to get the ball down and the last 25 minutes of the first-half we dominated,” he continued. “We created a few chances and we are just happy we didn’t lose all three of our games.”


The run-out against group winners Costa Rica was Wilshere’s second appearance in the tournament and his 21st cap overall. He was previously a second-half substitute in the 2-1 defeat to Italy in England’s first game.
