Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere: I Won't adjust playing style.



England midfielder Jack Wilshere insists he will not change his attitude towards the game, despite the injury issues he had in the past.

If you remember earlier in the season, the 23-year-old 'Wilshere' was side-lined for a couple of months due to an ankle injury and despite calls for Wilshere to change his approach to the game, he has responded by saying he is incapable of playing football any other way.

"When I was injured I read a few people who said that. I thought maybe they are right, maybe I should change it a little bit,” he said, as Sky Sports quoted.

"As soon as I came back on my first game naturally I wanted to pick up the ball up and run with it, I can’t change that. I can work on a few things maybe.

"You look at your best dribblers in the world - Messi, Iniesta - they keep the ball very close to them so maybe that’s something I can work on but I definitely won’t be changing my game."

England take on Slovenia on Sunday looking to maintain their perfect Euro 2016 Group E qualifying campaign and Wilshere spoke of the trip to Ljubjana.

"We are not going into the game thinking we want a draw. But at the same time we don’t want to lose a game," said the Gunners playmaker said.

"We want to keep that unbeaten run going. We feel we have enough quality to go over there and win the game. We kept a clean sheet on Sunday, it wasn’t the best performance but we did keep a clean sheet. If we can do that on Sunday, I think we can win the game.

"The manager and coaching staff have done really well with that. We had a few days off at the beginning of the week which we needed to get back to our families.

"We trained last night and again today and I thought we only trained for an hour and 10 minutes but the level and intensity were good. We are feeling good going into the weekend."
