GPS system makes Jack Wilshere reconsider England Under-21 stance

Jack Wilshere has revealed how Arsène Wenger's scientific application of performance data made him realise why he could not play for the England Under-21s in the European Championship next month.

The Arsenal midfielder's participation in the tournament in Denmark had become something of a saga, with the Under-21 manager, Stuart Pearce, determined to select him and Wenger equally adamant that he should not play, after a season in which he has played 55 games for club and country at all levels and graduated to Fabio Capello's senior England team. Wilshere has been named in the squad for the Euro 2012 qualifying tie against Switzerland on 4 June.
