London - Jack Wilshere will give England a World Cup boost
by returning to the Arsenal squad for Sunday's Premier League finale against
Norwich City, Gunners manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday.
Wilshere has been on the treatment table since breaking a
bone in his foot on international duty for England against Denmark on March 5.
But the 22-year-old is set to be involved at Carrow Road on
Sunday in Arsenal's last league match of the season, and one week before they
face Hull City in the FA Cup final.
"We have everybody who played against West Brom
available. We could have the return of (Aaron) Ramsey and Wilshere could be in
the squad as well for Sunday," Arsene Wenger told a press conference.
"He will be ready for the World Cup. For the rest, I do
not want to make an individual case of anybody.
"What is important is the team and that we prepare well
as a team."
It is a huge boost to both Wilshere and England manager Roy
Hodgson, who is set to take a pre-World Cup squad to a training camp in Miami.
However, the news wasn't so good for Alex
Oxlade-Chamberlain, who remains sidelined with a groin injury and is becoming a
major World Cup doubt.
"He has not at all practised with the first team,"
Wenger said of the midfielder.
