Ray Parlour: 'Jack Wilshere being wasted for England'

Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour believes Jack Wilshere is being wasted in the current England formation.

Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour has expressed his belief that Jack Wilshere is being wasted in the current England set-up.

Having played at the bottom of the midfield diamond for Roy Hodgson whilst on international duty, Parlour has said that the 22-year-old would be more useful in an attacking position.

Parlour told Press Association Sport: "I really believe his best position is more of an advanced midfielder. His game is best when he is doing those little one-twos around the penalty box.

"He knows exactly when to give it, he holds onto it enough and he does those driving runs forwards - I think that is Jack Wilshere at his best.

"Certainly I believe Jack Wilshere's position is more advanced and Roy will have to look into the further we get into the group and obviously in two years' time in the European Championships."

England will continue their European Championship qualifying campaign in Estonia on Sunday.
