England could suffer a major blow ahead of the European Championships this summer with the new that midfielder Jack Wilshere has suffered a reported injury set-back.
The promising teenager, who burst on the world stage with the Three Lions last season has not kicked a ball in a competitive match this term, having suffered a nasty ankle injury in pre-season. Those looking to bet on Euro 2012 online will be keeping an eye on his progress.
Wilshere was a key performer for his club side Arsenal last term, after impressing on a loan spell with fellow Premier League outfit Bolton Wanderers in the previous campaign.
It has been frustrating for Gunners boss Arsene Wenger to have one of his star midfielders, who has been referred to as 'the next Cesc Fabregas' at the Emirates, out on the side lines whilst the north London outfit struggle to live up to their high standards in the Premier League.
One man who certainly will be keeping a track of the player's progress will be England boss Fabio Capello, who would love to have a fully fit Wilshere in his squad for the European Championships in Poland and the Ukraine.
The early indications are not known as to how long Wilshere will be on the sidelines and Wenger has not been willing to be drawn in on the specifics.
He said: "Wilshere had a little setback which is under investigation.
"We don't know yet how bad it is. He has pain again in his ankle (when running).
"We stopped him right away. He is seeing a specialist today, so I do not want to give you any wrong information."
