Southgate offers World Cup carrot to Arsenal midfielder Wilshere

England coach Gareth Southgate believes Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere can make his World Cup squad.

Although Wilshere has not featured in a national squad since last November, there is a feeling he could be the man to add imagination to an England midfield that is causing Southgate concern.

Southgate has expressed concerns about his team's lack of creativity, particularly in midfield.

When asked directly whether Wilshere has an international future, Southgate said: "We're in a position where there's no way we would dismiss any creative player. But people have to be playing and have to be playing at a good level."
