Jack Wilshere has admitted that he is not confident of being in Roy Hodgson’s England squad for next summer’s World Cup finals, the Mirror understands.
The Gunners midfielder is odds on to be included in the party that will fly to Brazil in June, but is not resting on his laurels.
There are number of other exciting talents in his position for Hodgson to consider, and Wilshere is only too sure of the threat that they pose.
He also has to contend with a troublesome ankle problem, which has led to him completing just eight of Arsenal’s nineteen matches this season.
Meanwhile, Germany coach Joachim Low has confirmed that Serge Gnabry is in his thoughts as he prepares for the World Cup, according to Sky Sports.
The eighteen year old has made six first team appearances this season, and scored his first goal for the club in the 2-1 win over Swansea City at the Emirates back in September.
He has been capped for the Germans at both U17 and U19 level, but is yet to feature for the U21’s or the senior side.
However, Low referred to Gnabry as “a talented forward”, and said that he is keeping an eye on his progress whist speaking to reporters in Germany recently.
