Wilshere out for six weeks

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere will be sidelined for at least six weeks after suffering a left-foot fracture in England's 1-0 win over Denmark on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old was injured in a challenge with Danish defender Daniel Agger in the 12th minute and was subbed in the 59th minute of the game at Wembley.
