Wilshere's Euro hopes fading
Saturday 14 April 2012
Arsene Wenger admits Jack Wilshere's hopes of being available for this summer's Euro 2012 finals are disappearing fast as the player has yet to resume training with the Arsenal first-team squad.
Wenger, the Arsenal manager, had insisted Wilshere must prove his fitness before the end of April to have any chance of being considered for inclusion in the England squad.
"We are now in mid-April, the Euros start in the middle of June," said Wenger. "Jack has not played the whole season [due to an ankle problem]. He is making slow progress so we still have to monitor the situation. I will not take any risks with him. He is still in the gym and running."
