A niggling knee problem has prevented the midfielder from competing for club and country as often as he would have liked in recent years.

Collison has spent regular spells on the sidelines since 2009, with a setback last summer keeping him out of West Ham's return to Premier League competition.

He has, however, been back in contention since December and is confident that he can put the struggles of the past behind him.

Ahead of his first outing for Wales in almost a year, against Austria on Wednesday, Collison said: "It's been great to be back out on the pitch because it's been a bit of a long time once again.

"It's been frustrating after playing almost the whole of last season and then watching the boys play in the Premier League week in, week out against the best teams.

"It's good to be back and I've had some good games since then. I'm looking to build on those now and prove myself again.

"To be honest, the knee feels better than it has done in about three years, which is obviously good."

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.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

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.
