Arsenal lose Wilshere to injury for six weeks

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is set to be out for six weeks after sustaining a hairline fracture to the navicular bone in his left foot. The England international suffered the injury during the Three Lions 1-0 win over Denmark on Wednesday night at Wembley Stadium, in which he played 59 minutes.

The Gunners say on their official website: "Following initial scans carried out by the FA on Wednesday night, further investigation by Arsenal's medical team has discovered a crack to a small bone in Jack's left foot - the navicular, an area of his foot which has not been previously injured.

"Jack will now require a period of approximately six weeks' rehabilitation, before starting to regain his match fitness."
