Only Jack Wilshere Could Get Injured From His Own Teammate's Diving Header
It wasn't exactly the most thrilling first half in Moscow this evening as Arsenal look to progress into the Europa League semi-final.
But an unfortunate involving Jack Wilshere was perhaps the most entertaining moment of the match so far.
In the 8th minute, Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi tried to get rid of the ball with a diving header but the clearance hit Wilshere straight in the face.
He was down for longer than you'd expect and the referee even stopped the game.
Wilshere received further treatment on the sideline and we all thought judging by his luck that he'll probably be ruled out of the World Cup because of his own teammate.
Luckily though, he soon returned to action after a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
This has to be the most Jack Wilshere moment ever and social media reacted as you'd expect to the incident.
Will this lad ever catch a break?

Just another day in the life of Jack Wilshere.
Let's hope he stays fit for this summer's World Cup.
