Petr Cech has revealed that he is happy with the way Jack Wilshere made a return to the Arsenal first team, having been on the sidelines for the entirety of the season. The midfielder was out for the season after suffering a broken fibula in pre-season but has played three U-21 fixtures before being named as a substitute in their Premier League fixture against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
The 24-year-old is likely to make the England squad travelling to the European Championships in France later this year, with Roy Hodgson confident that he can have a positive impact on the tournament. Cech, who kept a clean sheet against Sunderland, despite the Gunners not taking full points, believes that Wilshere has every chance to make the national team and will be a revelation in France, despite having not played for an extended period.
"It is great to have him back. When you are working so hard, one the first one when he was trying to come back and to see him getting good again, it was really unlucky for him. He was spending hours training and coming back and he fully deserves to be back on the pitch. Hopefully he will get fit enough because he can be a massive help for England at the Euros," Cech told Arsenal's official website.
However, the Cech Republic international was not too pleased with the Gunners' recent form and wants them to take maximum points from the next three games to keep themselves in the race for a place in the top four. This was the Gunners' third draw in their last four games, leaving them four points adrift of Tottenham Hotpur, who have a game in hand.
"You need to start winning games. We have three games to play and we need to get as many points as we can. I don't think it will be enough to finish in the top two now as the other teams have taken advantage of our two points dropped," he added.
