Jack Wilshere has received more praises from Fabio Capello as England prepare to take on Wales. The youngster’s place as a starter for this Euro 2012 qualifying match has also been confirmed.
“[Jack] Wilshere will start tomorrow,” Capello told the press on Friday. The England manager also declared that the Arsenal midfielder was “one of the young players that improved the most in a really short time.”
“When he started, he was a young and interesting player. When he played the first game with us, he played 15 minutes at Wembley [against Hungary in August 2010]. He was good, although he was young.
“Now he is playing like a player that has played a lot of games, like a player of 28-29-years-old.”
Following his debut for England last year, Jack Wilshere became the 10th youngest player in history to represent the Three Lions. Last month, the Arsenal midfielder put in a sensational performance to help England defeat Denmark in an international friendly.
More of the same will be required from him on Saturday as Fabio Capello’s men look to triumph over Wales. England are second behind surprise leaders Montenegro in Group G of the Euro 2012 qualifiers.
