England cricketer Kevin Pietersen has pressed Jack Wilshere on Twitter over his comments that only English people should be able to play for the national team.
Jack Wilshere said he believed only English people should play for the national side when questioned over Roy Hodgson's plans to convince Manchester United's teen sensation Adnan Januzaj to play for England.
In response, South African-born Pietersen tweeted:
.@jackwilshere -interested to know how you define foreigner...? Would that include me, Strauss, Trott, Prior, Justin Rose, Froome, Mo Farah?
Wilshere, 21, said his comments concerned football and not any other sport.
@kp24 With all due respect Mr Pietersen the question was about Football! Cricket, cycling, Athletics is not my field!
However, the England cricketer insisted the same principle applied whatever the discipline:
