Gareth Southgate has backed Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere to be in contention for the Three Lions' squad, ahead of next summer's World Cup finals in Russia. The 26-year-old was ignored for the previous set of friendlies owing to his reduced game time, but he has since cemented his spot at the heart of the Arsenal midfield after an injury to Aaron Ramsey.
In a report covered by The Mirror, the England coach hinted that the Gunners graduate has a good chance of retaining his national team spot after impressing in the crucial games for the north London club, he said: "It’s a real plus to see him playing at the level he is, and looking as fit as he is. We know his quality, for him to be starting now in regular games, two games a week, playing at a high level is a real bonus for us.
