Roy Hodgson has insisted that he will do all he can to hand Jack Wilshere a place in his England squad for this summer’s European championships.

The Arsenal midfielder has not featured for the Gunners at all this season after he underwent surgery on a broken ankle last summer.

Wilshere is expected to make his return to action for the north London club in the coming weeks as he bids to regain his fitness as quickly as possible ahead of Euro 2016 in France.

And although Hodgson said that he would assess Wilshere’s fitness levels before deciding on whether to include him in his squad, the England boss talked up the importance of the midfielder to his team.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Hodgson said: “Our information from Arsenal is that he (Wilshere) will be back in good time.

“He is not guaranteed a place in the squad but I think his past performances merit a place in the squad.

“I think he played four games on the trot (for England) and was man-of-the-match in all of them. He is a very decisive player for us, even to such an extent that he has changed our style of play. He can get the rest of the team playing and make things happen.

“I don’t want to dismiss his chances but I accept that he has to be fit. I won’t say about Jack what I said about Wayne Rooney.”
