Wilshere prefers a more central role

Despite occasionally being used out wide by the Gunners, Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere reveals he prefers to play in a more central position.

After his return from a fractured leg that kept him out of all but three fixtures this season, Wilshere has made England's 26-man provisional squad for Euro 2016.

Three Lions' manager Roy Hodgson played the 24-year-old in a central midfield position in the 2-1 friendly win over Turkey on Sunday, which was something that the former England under-21 international enjoyed.

"With Arsenal I've been playing out wide, which is not me. I'm not a wide man," Wilshere told reporters.

"But Roy seems to have faith in me in the middle, so I'm happy with that.

"I like to play anywhere in the middle. I played the holding role before and I really enjoy that.

"I was a bit higher up the pitch against Turkey and I enjoyed that."
