Jack Wilshere has hit back after being omitted from England’s World Cup squad by insisting that he would have made a ‘real impact’ at the tournament. The 26-year-old was left out of England’s final 23-man squad earlier this week, with Gareth Southgate claiming that the midfielder’s inconsistent performances towards the end of Arsenal’s campaign was one of the reasons why he was not selected. Since the news of his failure to make Southgate’s squad, Wilshere has joined in with jokes from rival fans who have made light of his availability this summer on social media. But the Arsenal midfielder, who missed England’s last two friendlies against Netherlands and Italy due to an ankle injury, is adamant that he should be on the plane to Russia. ‘Think it’s about time I had my say,’ Wilshere wrote on Twitter.
