Englishman sustained another knock to the problem area against Germany.
Premier League leaders Arsenal are facing an anxious wait to discover the full extent of the latest injury picked by by key midfield player Jack Wilshere, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
The England international came on as a second-half substitute during the Three Lions’ friendly international against Germany at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday night, even though Gunners head coach Arsene Wenger had pleaded with his counterpart Roy Hodgson not to play Wilshere in any of the recent warm-up matches ahead of next summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil.
The Frenchman had hoped that his star man who not be utilised either against Chile last Friday evening, or when the Germans came to town earlier this week, with Wilshere still nursing his long-standing ankle injury which has previously kept the playmaker on the sidelines for 17 months.
However, much to the north London club’s surprise, not only did Wilshere start the first encounter with the South Americans, but the 21-year-old was then also introduced as a second-half substitute against the Germans, only for the Englishman to pick up yet another knock to his troublemsome ankle in a challenge with the visitors’ Sidney Sam that may now rule the player out of Arsenal’s key clash with Southampton on Saturday.
