Wilshere made his international debut as an 18-year-old in August 2010 but has only started once since 2011 due to an unfortunate series of injuries.

However, he has enjoyed a full pre-season with Arsenal and is all set to be in the line-up when England play host to Scotland in a Wembley friendly on Wednesday.

"My England career has been a bit stop start, and that is frustrating," said Wilshere.

"But, now that I have had a good pre-season, hopefully I can stay fit and get a good run of games with Arsenal, and then with England to help with the (World Cup) qualifiers.

"Playing for England is the pinnacle and missing matches has not been a good experience.

"I am yet to play in a World Cup match and haven't contributed anything to this qualifying campaign.

"But I want to help and I watch every game like a fan."

Wilshere says he thinks Wednesday's match could prove a lot more competitive than the usual international friendly.

"We're expecting a tough start," he said. "It'll be almost like a Premier League game in terms of intensity, there'll be tackles flying in.

"It's a friendly game but there's never a friendly between England and Scotland, and we'll be up for it as well."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
