Truly indicative of the nature of career Arsenal Jack Wilshere has is the fact the England man both scored AND gave everyone an injury scare as he steps up his return from injury, according to the Daily Mail.
The Gunners fans in the Transfer Tavern are used to that by now from the talented 23-year old, who is yet to play for the first-team at all this season after an ankle injury on the eve of the Community Shield.
Over the past few weeks, the England international has been turning out for the club’s under-21 squad as he bids to build up fitness ahead of Euro 2016.
Despite his ongoing problems with injury, he has been a regular under Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson ever since the World Cup in 2014 and many expect him to make the deep-lying playmaker role his own this summer.
Going down under a challenge against West Brom, he was on the floor for a number of minutes holding his knee.
However, Wilshere eventually returned to the action with his trademark combative midfield play and then proved his class with a well worked finish to put some momentum into his return ahead of this summer’s showpiece in France.
