WENGER TRUSTS HODGSON

The England manager Roy Hodgson has revealed that the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger certainly has a lot of trust him, despite the public criticism over the selection of the 20-year-old midfielder Jack Wilshere for the friendly match against Sweden this week.

England will be playing against Sweden in a friendly match, but Roy Hodgson has decided to select the Arsenal midfielder for this meaningless fixture even though he has just returned from more than a year out with a serious injury. Arsene Wenger said after the England call-up that he is extremely uneasy following this call-up because Wilshere has suffered a lot of setbacks in his attempts to recover from injury at a much earlier stage.

The England manager Roy Hodgson has confirmed that Jack Wilshere will not be part of the starting line-up for the match against Sweden. England will be taking on Sweden in the 50,000 seater Friends Arena on Wednesday night. They have made a good start to the World Cup qualifying campaign, which has prompted the England manager to call up a number of young players for the squad this time around. The likes of Sterling and Zaha are the new additions to the England squad, while the likes of Wayne Rooney and Theo Walcott are absent.

“I am aware of Arsene’s concerns, which I fully understand as he needs to look after a player who has been out for a length of time. But Jack is an important player for us and now he is fit and playing and available for selection, he understands we are going to put him in the squad. He trusts me to make certain I look after him. I have made it clear if he plays in this game it will be part of the game," said the England manager.
