Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere received a major shock to his international career after being left out of the England national team squad by new manager Sam Allardyce.
The player has had extreme bad luck with regard to injuries, but he did play in a couple of matches at the Euro 2016. Wilshere was expected to continue under Allardyce as one of the talented youngsters in the squad, but his absence comes as a major shock. The former Bolton and West Ham manager announced his squad for the upcoming World Cup 2018 qualifiers against Slovakia.
As expected, Allardyce was put forth the question of leaving out Wilshere and he claimed that this decision was taken on the back of the player’s poor appearance record for his club. The midfielder is yet to start a league match this season after featuring in both games as a substitute. Arsenal have taken the surprise decision of loaning out the midfielder in the hope of giving him more first-team action. Wilshere will find no shortage of interested parties and he is also no stranger to a loan move after having spent a short period at Bolton in 2010. In his eight seasons at Arsenal, Wilshere has managed only 157 appearances in all competitions thus averaging around 20 games a season.
