Fit at perfect time

Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere has admitted that he is fit for England’s World Cup in Brazil, thus giving a boost to Roy Hodgson and giving the whole team a lift. The Arsenal midfielder had not started a game since March, after fracturing his leg in a horrible tackle with Liverpool’s Daniel Agger during a friendly match between England and Denmark at Wembley. After the midfielder declared himself fit, he’ll be looking at Roy Hodgson now in order to get some game time and get fully fit in time and help England in Brazil.

Jack Wilshere said, "I've been training for a long time now. I'm yet to play a game, but I've been training now for six weeks.

"I'm feeling well. I maybe need a few games, but I'm feeling good. Hopefully, I can get some games under my belt before the big kick-off."

Wilshere’s long injury had dented Arsenal’s title hopes this season, with him being fit has given England a real hope of competing in Brazil. England have been drawn with Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica in Group D, they’ll have to beat at least 2 teams in order to reach the knockout stages and advance further in the competition.
