Jack: Win inspired by Barca

Fabio Capello stressed the need for England to put into operation

the pressing game of the Spanish giants against Gary Speed’s side

and it paid handsome dividends. England triumphed 2-0 with Wilshere

in impressive form on his competitive debut for his country in a

three-man midfield alongside Frank Lampard and Scott Parker who was

used in the holding role. Teenager Wilshere, part of the Arsenal

side beaten by Barcelona in the Champions League, said: “We watched

some videos of Barcelona and the way they pressed. “We tried to do

it like them against Wales. We pressed high and the idea was to get

some early goals and we got them. We made it comfortable for

ourselves. “We watched the videos a couple of days ago. We want to

press like them. “They are the best at it in the world and we have

to learn from teams like that. “At my age I am always learning and

I can learn from players like that in their side.” Wilshere

welcomes the belief of Fabio Capello in him to be a regular member

of the England starting line-up but knows he faces stiff

competition. He said: “These are the things you want to hear. At my

age, I am 19 and there are still players like Stevie Gerrard to

come back. “There are big players. I am trying to work hard for my

club and see if the manager picks me for internationals. “You are

around good players. It always helps. It is easy to play with

players like Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard. You can just fit in. I

think that helped me against Wales. “It’s about people like Scott

Parker as well. He was brilliant in Cardiff. He has brought his

club form to international level. “When you have a player like

Scott holding, you know you can go forward and rely on him to make

the tackles and win the ball back for you.” Wilshere has been under

the media spotlight after his performances for the Gunners against

Barcelona. He said: “It’s part and parcel of football. If you play

well, people will talk about you and that’s what you want. “But

like I said, at my age, I am 19 and still trying to improve every

day. “I have still got a lot to learn and want to work hard for my

club and bring it to international level.” England Under-21 coach

Stuart Pearce wants Wilshere to play in the summer European

Championship although Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has voiced

concerns. Wilshere is content to allow his managers at club and

international level to sort out what is the best solution. He said:

“This is international football and I want to play in any

international football. “It’s up to Stuart Pearce and Fabio

Capello. They will talk and see what’s best for me. “I always speak

to the manager at Arsenal and I will again. I am sure Stuart Pearce

and Fabio Capello will talk to him as well.”
