The confusing new reason Gareth Southgate hasn't picked Jack Wilshere for England

He was not called up to the most recent squad for this week's match with Germany despite a couple of dropouts and now, manager Gareth Southgate has explained why.

Hodgson took Wilshere to the European Championship even though not fully fit and virtually guaranteed him a place in his midfield when he was not injured.

Southgate encouraged Wilshere to keep working hard at Arsenal and refused to rule out the possibility of including the midfielder in his World Cup squad.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere on Thursday asserted his club is aiming to defeat Tottenham Hotspur in their English Premier League (EPL) tie on Saturday and finish above them in the points table.

As a candidate, Donald Trump vowed to block the deal because it concentrated too much "power in the hands of too few". However, according to the U.S. news site Wired, it's not clear whether the DoJ could successfully block the merger.

"You can accelerate people's progress and we saw that with a lot of the players we brought into the England team".

Hodgson has made no secret of his admiration for Wilshere, who spent the majority of last season away from his parent club in a spell with Bournemouth, for whom he made twenty-seven appearances.

"But at the same time, [Jesse] Lingard has started less games than Wilshere".

Wenger has played Wilshere as a No 10 this season. Southgate holds him in high esteem but his slide down the Arsenal pecking order and the difference of opinion over his deployment means he may need a new club, a new position or both in January.
