Jack Wilshere played the full 90 minutes for the Arsenal U21s today as Steve Gatting’s side sought the win that would give them promotion to Division One next season.
Unfortunately, they lost 3-1 with Serge Gnabry scoring for the second game in succession. However, Arsene Wenger will be pleased that Wilshere came through the full 90 minutes – the first time he’s done that since pre-season last summer.
Wilshere was joined by Tomas Rosicky once more – the Czech international played for 71 minutes before being replaced by Ben Sheaf.
It’s another step towards first team action for both players, and with the England and the Czech Republic in action at the European Championships this summer, they’ll need to make comebacks for their clubs to be properly considered.
Wilshere probably stuck his tongue out a few times, while we’re guessing Rosicky scampered around like the eager puppy he is.
Everyone loves puppies!
