Video: Ryan Mason Strongly Believes England Were Right to Ignore Jack Wilshere

Ryan Mason strongly believes England were right to ignore Jack Wilshere for the World Cup.

Much was made of the Arsenal midfielder’s omission from Gareth Southgate’s squad for the tournament in Russia this summer.

Wilshere played in 38 games for the Gunners in all competitions, chipping in with two goals and five assists.

And while former Tottenham midfielder Mason believes that’s an improvement on his lack of minutes in previous seasons, the lack of goals and assists is what stopped Wilshere from making the World Cup.

While appearing on Soccer AM’s ‘The Football Social’ show during England’s 2-1 win over Tunisia last night, Mason went in on Wilshere:

Those are some strong words from a player that could well have been an international teammate of Wilshere’s had he not suffered a career-ending head injury in 2017.

Now Mason is focusing on a new career off the pitch and controversial statements like these should definitely shine some spotlight on him if he’s interested in giving punditry a go.
