The England boss has been forced to pick several fringe players and add new caps after a raft of withdrawals from his squad to face Germany and Brazil and he admits he is uncertain when the likes of Danny Drinkwater or Jack Wilshere might be seen in an England shirt again.

With time running out for the 25-year-old to clinch a place in the Southgate's squad, a former England manager is set to hand him a lifeline.

Arsenal legend Tony Adams has stated his belief that the Gunners need home-grown midfielder Jack Wilshere because, as a product of the youth system, his attachment to the club is stronger than players brought in from elsewhere.

Southgate's rationale was Wilshere had not played enough Premier League football this season. But we are not playing with a 10 tomorrow.

"I'd like [Wilshere] to play even more, to be in the starting XI more often and get back into that England team", Adams told the London Evening Standard at this week's premiere for the documentary film "89", which tells the dramatic story of that year's title win.

Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson has urged Jack Wilshere to leave North London at the end of the season and try his luck overseas at 'a club like AC Milan'.

"We haven't discussed Jack Wilshere".

"So there's no point in talking about these things, but one day you might come with a name and say "what about this fella", and that might to some extent have emanated from here, but Jack's name has definitely not".

"It is alright Arsene Wenger saying a fit Jack Wilshere gets in the England team, but you have to play for Arsenal".

Wilshere: "I want to be playing for my country".

"He [Southgate] has called up Jack Cork, who I like and think is a good player, but Jack Wilshere has got to move".
