Jack says he’s ‘feeling good’ ahead of friendly with Peru
Jack Wilshere insists he’s ‘feeling good’ ahead of England’s friendly clash with Peru.
Jack who made his comeback in the last Premier League match of the season at Norwich and a late substitute appearance in the FA Cup Final, after fracturing his foot playing for England against Denmark, says he is fully fit for the World Cup.
Jack who has won 15 caps, told Sky Sports that he had been training for the last six weeks and was over the injury.
Asked if he was close to peak fitness, he replied: “I am… I have been training for a long time. I am yet to play a game, but I have been training for six weeks and I probably need a few games, but I am feeling good.
“I am lucky we’ve got quite a few warm-up games. Some nations are not playing as many, so hopefully I will be able to get some minutes under my belt before the big kickoff.”
England, who spent last week training in Portugal, are continuing their preparations back at home this week before playing Peru at Wembley on Friday.
They then meet Ecuador and Honduras in Miami next week before leaving for Brazil.
Their opening match is against Italy in Manaus on June 14, and it is followed by games against Uruguay on June 19 and Costa Rica on June 24.
