Jack Wilshere Mazy Run And Cross Sets Up Theo Walcott

It's a long time since Jack Wilshere was the great hope of England and Arsenal. The 25 year-old is now having to get his career back on track and if he continues like he did against BATE Borisov he might yet fulfil the potential.

Aged 16 years and 256 days Jack Wilshere became Arsenal's youngest ever debutant but that was nearly a decade ago and unfortunately for the midfielder his career is yet to take the path it once seemed destined to be on.

Most of that is of course down to injury and Wilshere looked certain to move on from Arsenal last year when he joined Bournemouth on loan. When even that loan didn't lead to the 25 year old getting his form back you worried.

Despite his contract running out at the end of the season Arsene Wenger kept him at the club this year and he's so far appeared in the Europa League and Carabao Cup for the Gunners.

Tonight he started as Arsenal travelled to Borisov in the Europa League and Wilshere had a very good game including setting up Theo Walcott with a brilliant run and cross:

Walcott should have already got one from a Wilshere assist before he opened the scoring but his shot was off target however the England winger did double his tally later on in the match.


Arsene Wenger's side would go on to win the match 4-2 with Rob Holding scoring and Olivier Giroud getting his 100th goal as a Gunner.

But it was Wilshere's performance that everyone was loving:


Could this be the start of his resurgence?
