Arsenal boss Wenger admits Kolasinac a doubt for Man City clash

Arsenal boss Wenger admits Kolasinac a doubt for Man City clash

Jack Wilshere will not be selected in the England squad to play Germany and Brazil later this month, according to Sky sources. "I see him more a player who can affect the game in the final third than a player who is a box-to-box player", Wenger said ahead of Thursday's Europa League game against Red Star Belgrade.

Even though Southgate travelled to the Emirates on Saturday in the hope of seeing Wilshere in the Premier League and discussed the 25-year-old's prospects with Wenger before kick-off, the Frenchman once again left the player on the bench.

Wilshere is likely to start the reverse fixture against Red Star at the Emirates on Thursday night and Wenger insists the midfielder is now back to his best.

It has been over a year since Wilshere made his last England appearance; that came at Euro 2016 as the Three Lions were embarrassingly knocked out of the tournament by Iceland.

Wenger also used the preview to tonight's match to urge Southgate to consider the long-term benefits of welcoming Wilshere back into the global fold.

Wilshere has impressed in the Europa League and Carabao Cup for the Gunners this season, playing as one of the two attacking midfielders behind the striker - positions that are occupied by Sanchez and Ozil in Wenger's Premier League lineup.

Article cited allegations that Abbas vowed not to appoint Hamas figures to his cabinet if they did not recognise Israel . The tunnel ended just over a mile from the Israeli village of Kissufum, which he said was the assumed target.

"I said many times that would be decided in December", he said when asked about Wilshere's contract.

"I am convinced that it would help him, personally". He has the attributes because, despite his size, he's very good in the air.

"I can only repeat what I personally think: I don't know how you can keep a super-fit Jack out of the England squad", Wenger continued.

Southgate has already revealed that he wants England to play with three-at-the-back at the World Cup and, interestingly, England have also been running the rule over Swansea central defender Alfie Mawson. For the past three weeks the manager has been able to treat him like every other member of his squad in terms of training and conditioning work.

The boss added: "We are all very pleased for him here because he has gone through some very hard moments with setbacks".
