Jack Wilshere has thanked Arsene Wenger for salvaging his would cup dream. Wilshere revealed he started to panic when he sustained injury from Daniel Agger's tackle at Wembley and the deadline for world cup squad announcement was getting nearer but Wenger forced him to be patient. Jack Wilshere now believes he is ready to show his quality as he is aiming to earn his 16th cap in the upcoming friendly against peru.
He said: "I did speak to Arsene
because I came back training and I was panicking a bit about the squad.
"I wanted to be in it. I went to him and said I thought I was ready.
"But he said 'No you are not; you need to train if you are to have a good World Cup, you need a good fitness base and you will be right in every aspect'.
"And that is what I am now. I knew that I would be fit it was just down to whether the
manager thought I was ready and whether I felt ready myself as well.
"Unfortunately I have been in that position a lot, wondering how long it takes to come back
and get back to the same level but I knew a bone would take six weeks."
"If I'd been left out I would have
been devastated.
"It would have been because I wasn't fit and wasn't playing but I just wanted to be here.
"I knew the work I had to do and if I got here I could prove to the manager that I am ready.
"And I have to thank him, too, because he didn't see much of me at the end of the season, although he kept in contact, as did Gary Neville.
"I like to think he saw enough of me throughout the season and he knew what I could do if I was fit I would do my best in the team.
"My last start was that Denmark game in March. It's been a long time and I haven't played a game. I am looking forward to getting out there. I had a little taste at the end of the season and now I just want to play."
