Liverpool and Denmark defender Daniel Agger has defended his tackle on Jack Wilshere which left the Arsenal and England man with a broken foot.

Agger caught Wilshere on the foot with a heavy challenge during England's 1-0 win over Denmark on Wednesday night.

"It was 50-50. You have to go for those challenges," Agger told the Daily Mirror.

"I was going for the ball and I think I got the ball, but the referee didn't."
England boss Roy Hodgson absolved Agger of any blame for the injury.
