Jack Wilshere’s awesome assist has gone viral after the former Wanderers midfielder starred in this year’s Soccer Aid charity match.

Wilshere sat down ex-Chelsea and Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech with clever footwork before setting up Ellen White, who became the first female player to score in the annual event.

Former Bolton defender Gary Cahill and famous fan Paddy McGuinness also represented England as a record £15million was raised for charity.

The hosts ran out 6-3 winners against the Rest of the World XI at Stamford Bridge. Joe Cole, Jermaine Defoe, Theo Walcott, Eden Hazard and Alessandro Del Piero were also among the scorers on the night.

Football fans have been raving about Wilshere’s assist on social media, with one writing: “That boy should still be playing at the highest level”.

Another joked: “Have to stop those tackles going in on Wilshere, need to keep him fit for the Euros”.

Wilshere joined the Whites on loan from Arsenal in 2010 and quickly became a popular figure among supporters during his time in the North West.

The midfielder went on to make 197 appearances for the Gunners, winning the FA Cup twice, and was also capped 34 times by England on the international stage.

He later had spells at West Ham and Bournemouth, plus a stint in Denmark with Aarhus, before calling time on his playing career.

Wilshere returned to the Emirates in 2022 to take charge of the Gunners’ Under-18 side. Last year, he said: “It’s given me back the real deep love for football and I didn’t know I’d lost it, to be honest.

“I love it. On the grass, trying to beat teams, trying to work out a way to play against teams, trying to develop an individual.”
