Jack Wilshere: I should have been in the England Squad

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has taken to Twitter to express his disappointment at being left out of England's squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

England boss Gareth Southgate could not find room for Wilshere in his 23-man squad instead taking youngsters like Crystal Palace midfielder Reuben Loftus-Cheek.

Wilshere could be joining long-serving manager Arsene Wenger in leaving the Emirates Stadium this summer as he still hasn't agreed a new deal with the club.

"Think its about time I had my say," Wilshere wrote on Twitter.

"It goes without saying that I’m naturally incredibly disappointed to have been left out of the England squad for the World Cup. I’ve felt fit, sharp and strong all season and believe I should be in the squad!

"And given the chance I could have made a real inpact.

"However, I have to respect the manager’s decision and would like to wish the whole squad all the very best for the tournament. I will always be an England fan and will be supporting the boys with the rest of the nation."
