The Arsenal midfielder made headlines last week after being pictured smoking a cigarette outside a nightclub.

Wilshere then struck the equaliser for the Gunners in the 1-1 draw at West Brom on Sunday.

When asked about his views on naturalised players representing England he said: "The only people who should play for England are English people."

But he has revealed on Twitter he wished the 18-year-old was English and claims the media have twisted his comments.
