Despite reports on Thursday that Jack Wilshere would be snubbed by Gareth Southgate, it seems that the midfielder will indeed be named in his provisional World Cup squad.

Gareth Southgate will name his provisional 35-man squad for the tournament before 14 May.

He will then have until 4 June to whittle that down to a 23-man shortlist of players who will actually go to the tournament.

The Daily Star claimed on Thursday that Wilshere would be snubbed with Southgate not confident he could rely on Jack’s fitness despite the fact that he has been fit all season for Arsenal.

Now, Sami Mokbel writes in today’s Daily Mail that Wilshere, due to his improved form over recent weeks, is set to be named in the provisional squad at least.

Wilshere made his England debut in August, 2010 when he replaced Steven Gerrard against Hungary.

He was the 10th youngest player to play for England aged just 18 years and 222 days.

Injury has restricted him to just 34 caps.
