‘Let me know the dates and I’m in’: Jack Wilshere jokes he will join a lads’ holiday to Zante after World Cup snub
- Jack Wilshere has had a laugh at his own expense after his World Cup snub
- He was told by Gareth Southgate on Tuesday he was not in the England squad
- After the news broke he got an invitation to go on a lads’ holiday this summer
- The Arsenal man replied to the tweet: ‘Let me know the dates and I’m in’
- He also acknowledged a meme made to mock his and Joe Hart’s exclusion
Southgate informed Wilshere he would not be part of his 23-man squad on Tuesday via a telephone call and he will not be on the stand-by list either.
The Arsenal midfielder would have been left pondering how to fill his summer after being snubbed by the England boss.

Wilshere also posted a picture of himself looking perplexed alongside the caption: ‘What am I going to do for the next seven weeks?’

Matches played: 38 (13 in Europa League, 20 in the Premier League, 5 in the Carabao Cup)
Pass Success %: 86.4
However, shortly after the news broke, Wilshere was invited to join a lads’ holiday to Greece and seemed keen to tag along.
After being asked if he wants to go to Zante on Twitter, Wilshere replied: ‘Let me know the dates and I’m in.’
He later clarified he could only go providing he could bring his newly-born baby daughter Siena.
Wilshere later acknowledged a meme which showed a picture of himself and Joe Hart, who has also been omitted, in a swimming pool with the caption: ‘Don’t listen to them Jack, we’re good footballers.’
Despite finding the funny side of his situation, Wilshere will undoubtedly be bitterly disappointed to miss out on the World Cup, having performed well enough towards the end of the season to be considered for a spot on the plane.
Southgate has however named Fabian Delph in place of the Arsenal man following an impressive season for Manchester City.
