  • Jack Wilshere

The England boss has been forced to pick several fringe players and add new caps after a raft of withdrawals from his squad to face Germany and Brazil and he admits he is uncertain when the likes of Danny Drinkwater or Jack Wilshere might be seen in an England shirt again.

And Merson believes Wilshere must consider leaving Arsenal in January to push for a place in England's squad for the World Cup next summer.

"You can accelerate people's progress and we saw that with a lot of the players we brought into the England team".

Wilshere is likely to feature in Arsenal's two remaining Europa League group games and the Carabao Cup clash with West Ham in December.

"I have got no idea about where the name of Jack Wilshere has come from, so where did you get it from?"

Wilshere spent last season on loan at Bournemouth where he made 27 Premier League appearances.

Racing is my priority, not tax issue, says F1 champ Lewis Hamilton
Hamilton , who won his fourth F1 title on October 29 in Mexico, is in Sao Paulo for this weekend's Brazilian Grand Prix. His Mercedes team have stated that the matter is in the hands of his lawyers and he would make no further comment.


"I really like Jack Wilshere as a player", he said. I think he is a talent and I really respect him as an individual.

"I will tell you who, his agent - because that's where newspapers get their stories from". I am happy with where I am, playing-wise. "Of course I want to stay".

Wilshere was speaking at the premiere of 89, a documentary on the Arsenal side who beat Liverpool to the 1989 league title thanks to an injury-time victor from Michael Thomas at Anfield, an iconic moment in the club's history.

"I left a year ago to get some football, I've done that and I'm back now and I'm fit and ready to play".

Home-grown Adams feels that was an important part of the Arsenal side that famously won the league in 1989, with the likes of David Rocastle, Michael Thomas, Paul Davis, Niall Quinn and Paul Merson all also having emerged from the club's youth team.
