Pearce set to include Wilshere in European squad

Stuart Pearce is to risk the fury of Arsene Wenger by selecting Jack Wilshere for the European under 21 championships.

A provisional 40 man squad for June's tournament is due to be announced later this month, among which Wilshere is expected to be named.

Wenger believes it puts too much pressure on Wilshere, who has played most games for Arsenal this season, and he said that he would rest the player at the start of next season if he went to Denmark for the tournament, meaning he would miss England qualifying games for the European Championships in 2012.
