Although his run-out for the U23s last night ended somewhat prematurely, Jack Wilshere appears to have enjoyed himself, and says he’s hungry for more football.
The England international played well in the first half and provided a lovely assist for Eddie Nketiah, before things went a bit wrong in the second period. Reacting to a late challenge, the 25 year old was shown a red card, and his tussles with the Man City opponent carried on into the tunnel.
All the same, it seems to have rekindled something in him, and he used his Instagram account to talk about his desire to play more.
“Well, that was eventful ?,” he said. “Felt good to be back on the pitch at the Emirates even though it ended earlier than I thought. My passion and my hunger is back, buzzing for more games.”
His dander was certainly up, as he also reacted on Twitter to an article in The Sun which said his career had hit a ‘new low’.
Evening Sam…Intrigued to hear more about how you think this is a career low for me? Would love a sit down with you? Look forward to it. https://t.co/nyVzXGyNxA

Far be it for us to advise him, but while the story itself was the kind of cheap, clickbait trash that is so prevalent these days, most people will have looked at the source and understood that it had about as much journalistic merit as a shoe.
Still, if it’s sparked a bit of that Wilshere fire, then it’s no bad thing really. Except, of course, The Sun is a bad thing and nobody should buy The Sun but then you all know that already.
