Wilshere out for six weeks with foot injury

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere will be out of action for at least six weeks after fracturing his foot, according to BBC Sport.

The 22-year-old was injured in the 12th minute of England’s 1-0 friendly win over Denmark on Wednesday night.

Despite the injury, the midfield man continued to play until the 59th minute and now looks set to be out for over a month for the Gunners.

Wilshere’s injury was initially not thought to be serious after he underwent a scan by the FA but a further check by his club revealed that had cracked his navicular bone.

The England international will now miss Arsenal’s FA Cup quarter-final clash with Everton on Saturday as well as the Champions League last-16 second leg against Bayern Munich.

Wilshere’s absence will come at a crucial time for the Gunners and is likely to miss games against rivals Chelsea and Manchester City as they make their title push in the final stretch of the season.
