Gunners suffer major blow – Jack Wilshere ruled out for six weeks

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has been sidelined for at least six weeks with a hairline fracture in his left foot during England’s encounter with Denmark on Wednesday, the club’s official website announced.

The statement on their official website read as: “Jack Wilshere has sustained a hairline fracture to the navicular bone in his left foot.

“Wilshere suffered the injury during England’s international match with Denmark on Wednesday night at Wembley Stadium, in which he played 59 minutes.”

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

The England international was injured during a heavy collision with Liverpool defender Daniel Agger in the 12th minute of England’s 1-0 win over Denmark at Wembley.

Wilshere, 22, absence will be a huge blow to Arsenal, whose crucial match continues in Saturday’s FA Cup quarter-final against Everton and Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 second-leg clash against Bayern Munich.
