Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has admitted his disappointment over failing to make the England squad for the World Cup. The 26-year-old was one of the most high-profile exclusions from the Three Lions squad after manager Gareth Southgate decided to gamble with several younger players for the global tournament.
Wilshere had remained quiet shortly after the squad was announced on Wednesday but he has now expressed his sadness via Twitter, he wrote:"Think it’s about time I had my say. 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 impact. 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."
