Wilshere is a pretty contentious subject among England fans. He was definitely hyped as the next big thing, future England Captain etc. but to be honest I don't think he was ever that good. He's a pitbull with decent passing ability, but overall absolutely nothing special. He doesn't even always start for Bournemouth. Alli and Lallana vastly outperform him statistically so they get the nod over him.
He may have become a better player if he hadn't been sidelined by injuries so much, but at the moment I don't think he factors into England or Arsenal's future.
