Wilshere hates foreigners

This Adnan Januzaj guy has done pretty well recently, to the extent that I can even pronounce his name now, but that hasn't stopped Jack Wilshere taking a break FROM SMOKING OH MY GOD DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THIS DID YOU SEE THIS to ban him from England

Wilshere was talking in a press conference, or EDL rally, or something about the possibility of Januzaj electing to play for England instead of the other countries he's actually from, even though there is absolutely no way in hell he would ever choose that:
"If you live in England for five years it doesn't make you English.""If I went to Spain and lived there for five years, I'm not going to play for Spain."

In his defence, Jack Wilshere is a 21 year old footballer and not anyone who has any real level of education or understanding of why these comments might be misconstrued.  Also, I'd be inclined to agree that having players play for your country when they have absolutely nothing to do with it isn't really fair when it comes to international football.  That's the whole point of international football.  You don't just borrow a Brazilian.  That's why clubs can buy players from just wherever.  Matt Elliot used to play for Scotland ffs because his granny once got a ride behind the bike shed on a school trip.  I don't think that counts
