Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere was an unused substitute in England’s 2-1 win over Wales (Euro 2016 Group B), but could find himself in contention of playing in the Three Lions’ final group game given how disappointing Tottenham Hotspur’s Dele Alli has been so far.

Wilshere was given around 15 minutes of playing time in England’s opening game draw against Russia and was praised by manager Roy Hodgson for providing a similar creative threat as Wayne Rooney, the man he replaced in the second-half. Wilshere is a known favourite of Hodgson’s, and the need to retain possession could make the Arsenal man a better fit with how Alli’s struggling to enforce himself.
