Jack Wilshere is set to be sidelined for six weeks due to a hairline fracture in his left foot, Arsenal have confirmed.

The 22-year-old picked up the injury in the first half of England’s 1-0 victory over Denmark after a clash with Liverpool centre-half Daniel Agger at Wembley.

Wilshere shrugged off the injury and wasn’t replaced until Roy Hodgson introduced Southampton skipper Adam Lallana in the 67th minute, with Daniel Sturridge netting a late winner.

The Arsenal midfielder played down the injury scare as a “bruise” following the friendly on Wednesday night, but the Gunners have confirmed that Wilshere has suffered a fracture and will now miss a crucial period.

“Following initial scans carried out by the FA on Wednesday night, further investigation by Arsenal’s medical team has discovered a crack to a small bone in Jack’s left foot – the navicular, an area of his foot which has not been previously injured,” a statement read on Arsenal’s website.

“Jack will now require a period of approximately six weeks’ rehabilitation, before starting to regain his match fitness.”

Wilshere has scored three goals and made four assists in 24 Premier League appearances this season.
