Scan good news for Wilshere

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has confirmed he is suffering from nothing more than an inflammation of his ankle and should be fit again "in a few days''.

Wilshere picked up the knock in the Gunners' pre-season friendly against New York Red Bulls on Sunday and underwent a scan.

It was hoped this would shed some light on whether he would miss England's friendly with Netherlands next week, although his participation remains in the balance with no definitive timescale in place for his return.

Wilshere confirmed on his Twitter account: "Ankle scan just showed some inflammation. Hopefully will settle down in a few days.''

The scan confirms the initial prognosis of the Arsenal medical staff, who informed manager Arsene Wenger that he could expect to be without the 19-year-old for a week.

The injury could still put Wilshere out of the Gunners' final pre-season friendly at Benfica on Saturday.

Wenger said after Sunday's game that Wilshere would most likely be unavailable for England's August 10 friendly should he fail to recover in time to play in Portugal.
