Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere insists that he feels ‘fit and ready’ to represent England during the Euro 2016 in France.
This season the 24-year-old was sidelined for nine months with a leg injury, but returned for the Gunners during their final three Premier League fixtures of the season
On his return Wilshere put in an impressive performance for Arsenal against Manchester City during their 2-2 draw at Etihad Stadium in May.
Wilshere has played in all three of England’s warm up games ahead of this summer’s tournament in France, and insists he is in peak condition now, reports the Arsenal website.
‘I feel fit and ready,’ Wilshere said.
‘I said that when Roy first named his 26-man squad. I said I was ready to be in it. If I didn’t feel like I was ready to be in the squad, I would have said so to the manager and the staff.
The England international revealed that before making his return from injury he trained hard to make his return before the season ended.
‘I had been training before [the Manchester City game] for six or seven weeks, so I was desperate to get on to the pitch. It probably was the moment I thought I was ready,’ he added.
Wilshere believes that every Premier League manager will be watch the Three Lions performance during the Euro 2016 and went on to praise his national team, stating they have good qualities in attack and defence.
‘Every single Premier League manager will be watching every single Premier League footballer [at the Euros],’ the 24-year-old said.
