The inclusion of the Arsenal midfielder - already the subject of a club-versus-country row this summer - came despite him missing the Gunners' pre-season defeat to Benfica on Saturday night with an ankle problem.

But Wenger insisted Capello was wasting his time by including the 19 year-old.

"They can include him as much as they want, he will not play [because of injury]," Wenger said.

Theo Walcott also missed the 2-1 loss to Benfica, but had not been selected by Capello.

Should Wilshere be withdrawn, he will join Aston Villa's Darren Bent in pulling out of the game, with more absentees expected.
