Picking an England XI to Annoy Jack Wilshere

Jack Wilshere has caused quite a stir with his latest comments, reported by The Guardiansuggesting we should "keep England for the English."

It's in response to the Adnan Januzaj debate, in which many prominent figures are wading in to give their views on a convoluted, messy subject.

Wilshere doesn't really define what he sees as "English," though, and his comments have simply muddied the water further. What qualifies you to be English? Must you be born in England, raised in England, speak English perfectly?

We've crafted an England XI that might well annoy Jack Wilshere, given his views on the matter and stuck him right in the middle of it.


*Please note: this is a tongue-in-cheek reaction to Wilshere's recent interview on the Januzaj debacle. Its aim is to highlight the difficulties in defining what is "English" and what is not, given the astonishing amount of complex scenarios presented with each player.
