Wilshere forcing way into England squad

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is confident that Jack Wilshere has forced his way back into the England squad with his recent performances, and says the midfielder’s improved defensive awareness has taken his game to another level. Wilshere was one of Arsenal’s standout performers in the 3-2 win over Crystal Palace on Thursday, his fourth straight Premier League start after being used sparingly during the first half of the season.

England manager Gareth Southgate snubbed Wilshere in his previous squad selection, citing a lack of league starts, but Wenger said the midfielder is making it impossible to overlook him for the national team. “First of all, I don’t think that Southgate ignores him, but he will certainly re-think about his situation, when he [produces] performances like that,” Wenger said.
