Jack Wilshere says feeling he should be in the England squad does not mean he is "self indulgent" as he hit out at a journalist over his World Cup snub.

Wilshere was among the headline absentees from Gareth Southgate's 23-man squad for the tournament, along with Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart.

The Arsenal midfielder - who made 38 appearances this season - subsequently complained about his omission, writing on Twitter: "I should be in the squad!"

Wilshere's outspoken response drew a mixed response and he responded angrily to a journalist who criticised him and suggested he had been badly advised on Friday.

"And what would you know about me or who gives me advice?" Wilshere posted on Twitter. 

"Because I believe I should be in the squad means I'm being self indulgent? You know nothing."
