EXCLUSIVE: Gunners legend claims Wilshere should NOT start for England

first_imgRay Parlour believes Jack Wilshere should not be starting for England right now, telling talkSPORT that the Arsenal midfielder is not good enough get into a full strength side.Roy Hodgson caused controversy before Euro 2016 by declaring Wilshere a member of his squad for the tournament despite the fact he had hardly played during the Premier League campaign.Many expected the 24-year-old to be a key player due to Hodgson constantly insisting his importance, but he only played 12 minutes of the opening draw against Russia, before being dragged off in his first start against Slovakia – after a less than impressive showing.He came into the starting XI at the expense of the resting Dele Alli and Wayne Rooney, and Parlour doubts whether Wilshere deserves another starting role if Hodgson’s entire squad is fit.The Gunners hero told Drive: “He’s a good substitution to bring on, Jack, because he’s calm and good on the ball. But at the moment, I just can’t fit him in my team.”The main way Parlour believes the Arsenal man will earn a starting role will be due to an injury to Adam Lallana, who left training today with an ice pack on his ankle.If the Liverpool winger is out of the game against Iceland, Wilshere could be used in a midfield role with Alli and Rooney moved around to accommodate him.“It’s all down to him [Lallana]”, Parlour added. “If he’s not fit or not at 100%.“If he’s only 60% fit he [Hodgson] might have to change it. He might push Alli out [to the wing] and push Rooney in, and Wilshere might get an opportunity.“But certainly, if everybody’s fit, I don’t think he gets in the side at the moment.”last_img read more
