Jack Wilshere has played down fears he suffered a bad injury in last night’s pointless friendly with Denmark.
The midfielder went into a challenge with Liverpool’s Daniel Agger, then lay there as if his foot has been smashed into a thousand pieces. A stretcher was called, but he got up and carried on, and after the game he revealed:
It is a bit sore, but just a bruise. I have had a scan already and I will be alright.
Arsene Wenger will be anxiously awaiting news of his international stars who played last night. As we know, Laurent Koscielny was not risked by France for their game because of a hamstring strain, so he’ll be assessed before this weekend’s FA Cup clash against Everton.
As yet there have been no further reports of injury, so fingers crossed everyone comes back with a clean bill of health.
