Too early' for Jack Euro call

Wenger says he doesn't know when Wilshere will be fit again

Arsene Wenger says it is too early to say if Jack Wilshere will be fit to play for England at Euro 2012.

As confirmed on Friday, the midfielder suffered another injury setback as he looks to recover from an ankle injury that has forced him to miss every Arsenal game this season.

The 20-year-old picked up the injury on international duty last summer and, after initially wearing a protective boot, it was decided he needed surgery on his ankle.

Wilshere was scheduled to return to first-team action in early February, but after suffering from pain in training he will now see a specialist to decide on what course of action is needed.
Wenger said: "I would not (worry) at the moment (about the summer).

"We are now at the end of January. He has not played since the summer, so for the friendly against Holland (on 29th February) it is impossible.

"From day one, when you are completely fit to practice again, to be match fit you count at least six weeks.

"Jack is gutted. It is a massive disappointment, but I am really disappointed for him as well because he is a football animal.

"I am so sad that at that age you have to be out for such a long time with not any obvious reason.

"If you had have told me that Jack would not have played one game by February, I would have said 'that is impossible'.

"We miss that little burst from Jack. Let's hope it goes well and we have good news (from the specialists)." -
