Stuart Pearce is remaining hopeful that Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere will be able to play at the Olympics, according to the Daily Star.
The 20-year-old is currently recuperating from a successful knee operation he underwent in Sweden yesterday.
However, the England international is also still recovering from the serious ankle injury, which saw him miss all of last season.
Arsene Wenger has repeatedly voiced his disapproval over plans from Pearce to include Wilshere in his Team GB squad.
The Frenchman is hopeful that the midfielder will be fit for pre-season training on July 9.
