Watch Wilshere’s stunning brace for England

100

Two stunning goals by man of the match Jack Wilshere helped England to a 3-2 win in Slovenia that maintains Roy Hodgson’s 100 per cent winning record in Euro 2016 qualification Group E.

The Arsenal midfielder found the top corner with a stunning first time effort to level the game on 57 minutes and then hit an even sweeter shot with the same left foot to give the Three Lions the lead 16 minutes later.

The strikes were his first in an England shirt since he made his debut five years ago.

_____


England went behind to Milivoje Novaković in the first half and look set for a draw when Nejc Pečnik equalised with six minutes left. However, Wayne Rooney – who’d previously missed two sitters – ensured his side claimed the victory with a clam finish with four minutes remaining.

Kieran Gibbs played the full 90 minutes while Theo Walcott came off the bench.

Cheers to @BLarsenAFC1886 for the Vines.

You mean one that the scorer uses a lot of ‘mussel’ or just remains ‘whelk’-ool?

Or just silences the crowd so they ‘clam’ up?

Meanwhile how obsessed is English media with rooney?
Some of the scribes are giving him and his leadership qualities the credit for for Wilshere’s brilliant form.

Go and read the post about SZCZ that went up a day or so after the FA cup final. There are people in the comments saying he’s better than Courtois and dozens of people thumbing it up. I’m obviously not knocking him or his performance but people need to get a grip.

It may seem that way but in fairness those former Yugo teams tend to turn up on the day.

World champions perhaps not but they can rattle anyone at any given time.

Comment of the match from the execrable Townsend (Andy): “jack seems to play so much better for England than for Arsenal”. Now I don’t expect much from a man for whom ” the tactics truck” proved too difficult in his first incarnation as a pundit and who had to pretend to once have drunk in a theme pub in order to play international football, but to make such an oversight about a player who didn’t turn out for his club between November and May really does make his comment among the most stupid I can remember.

Maybe it has to do with Jack being the big fish in a small pond (England) and him now being an averaged size fish in a sea of sharks!

By no means am I saying he’s average (I want/expect nothing more than the best from him), but The Arsenal is a country mile better than the England side.

I would spend the summer money on Ramos and let this squad dominate. One quality centre back is all we need now. I have faith with this squad. I love BFG but we got to get the best now and if this is the only signing we make we can compete with chelsea with what we got. Sometimes we just have to come to realise the big man is friendly, fierce but not fast and that makes the difference when playing the best.

Bfg is a nice man Mr thumbs down (with no comment) but we are not going to ever compete with Chelsea or any top quality team with him there. Although I hate to state the truth as he is truly a big fucking gentleman. Love his personality, his playing style but we surely need a quality centre back to compete with the best.

Just imagined opening the front door and BFG is there. Not a happy man I presume but win him over after showing clip of Keown trying to draculate (hey i have invented a word) well force his incisors down Van Cunt Nistelroys neck. He responds well after I hand him Jack’s shisha. Now we are playing scrabble as we witness on the sports bulletin that Ramos has signed to play for us. The Big German smiles as he applies the letter S on top of my word “hit” by the way where is the rambler?

BFG is one of the reasons we have turned our season around after Jan.

Forget Coquelin. As good as he has become (and he has improved dramatically), we would have the same results had we not returned to the Meterscielny partnership.

Who needs speed when you are already there? BFG’s positioning has been pretty immaculate over the second half of season.

Its a simplistic argument in the extreme to feel Gabriel is ready to step up ahead of him.

santori

Another player ready to step up. Jack is within that 23yr age group where we have seen previously Ramsey, Walcott Fabregas and NAsri before, Now Coquelin step up. But to some more simplistic minds, there is no such thing as organic improvement and buying is the only solution. We need to invest in world class players according to them like say Falcao rather than Giroud. There is no room to be made for Bellerin type players from the academy or Monreal or for that matter Jack. Players simply do not improve. They would have sold Ramsey and Walcott ages ago… Read more »

Fantastic pair of goals from Wilshere, and on the second one I especially loved the announcer yelling “Oh, that’s even better than the first!”

Watching all of our players doing so well on international duty just gives me goosebumps for next season. Honestly, if everyone can stay fit throughout the summer, it won’t matter if we sign anyone or not. The squad we’ve got, if fit, can walk the league.
