Mario Gotze shows Jack Wilshere how to deal with World Cup snub with classy tweet

England v Germany - International Friendly

A number of high profile names have not been chosen to represent their country at the World Cup in Russia.

Joe Hart and Jack Wilshere are two of the most recognisable names in English football at the moment, yet neither have been picked by Gareth Southgate.

Didier Deschamps has an array of French talent at his disposal, meaning that Alexandre Lacazette and Anthony Martial have no place in his squad.

And there's been another surprise as Germany's 23-man squad has been released.

Mario Gotze scored the winner for Die Mannschaft in the 2014 World Cup final, but health problems and a lack of form have seen him not picked by Joachim Low for this summer's edition.


Jack Wilshere initially had a bit of fun after it was announced he would miss the World Cup, but he then sent a very serious tweet which many considered to be bitter.

"Think its about time I had my say... It goes without saying that I’m naturally incredibly disappointed to have been left out of the England squad for the World Cup," he wrote.

"I’ve felt fit, sharp and strong all season and believe I should be in the squad!"

Wilshere may have had a point, but many have viewed his tweet as bitter and unprofessional.

He did later tweet that he wishes England all the best in Russia, but it was still a post that has caused a huge stir.


Mario Gotze has now reacted to his omission, and it is true class from the World Cup winner.

In juxtaposition to Wilshere, Gotze vowed to work his hardest to get back into the team, before announcing that he has his fingers crossed that they win the trophy for the second consecutive time.

"Of course I'm sad that I'm not attending the World Cup," he wrote.

"I will do everything I can to get back to the squad of our national team. I wish the boys, the coaches and the team behind the team a good time in Russia and I will keep my fingers crossed for everyone to be world champions."

Class from Gotze.

The 25-year-old has had a torrid time in recent years as a result of being diagnosed with myopathy.

But this was a class way to react to a very disappointing bit of news.

Wilshere perhaps could learn something from the German star.

Was omitting Gotze the right decision by Joachim Löw? Have your say by leaving a comment below.
