Jack Wilshere has waded into the ‘should Adnan Januzaj play for England’ debate by claiming the United starlet doesn’t have the right to represent Roy Hodgson’s men.
Speaking ahead of England’s World Cup qualifier against Montenegro, Wilshere noted:
“No, for me if you are English you are English and you play for England. The only people who should play for England are English people. If you live in England for five years it doesn’t make you English. If I went to Spain and lived there for five years I am not going to play for Spain.”
Wilshere’s words have already caused something of a twitter storm with many accusing the Arsenal midfielder of being xenophobic. Although he’s left himself open to criticism and many won’t agree with Wilshere’s notions on the national side, more than a few Reds may be happy to see Januzaj avoid the England team and all that comes with it.
