Jack Wilshere: Says he can improve after impressive performance against Brazil

The Arsenal midfielder turned in a stylish display to help Roy Hodgson's side run out 2-1 winners at Wembley, with Frank Lampard netting the winner after Wayne Rooney's opener had been cancelled out by Fred.

Wilshere is satisfied with the way he is playing after a long spell out of action due to injury, but recognises that he must continue performing well at club level to cement a place in the England side.

"I feel my form is getting better and better," he told Sky Sports.

"I am never happy with where I am. I am always trying to improve. I work hard in training every day and I need to keep my performances up for my club and then hopefully I can get picked in the national team and I can do it there as well."

Wilshere says that playing alongside captain Steven Gerrard made his job easier, while he believes Tom Cleverley also helps to provide balance to the midfield.

He said: "Stevie talks to me the whole game. He's telling me left, right. He was playing in the holding role but you can't keep Stevie in the holding role.

"I think it is good for us that he can go and I can cover, and Cleverley can come in as well. We have got a good mix in there."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
