Arsenal boss Wenger convinced Jenkinson will play for England

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is confident Carl Jenkinson will soon be capped by England.

Jenkinson trained with the England squad last week, though is eligible for Finland.

"I think it’s a bit early, but I am sure he will be there," said Wenger.

"He has developed extremely well. In his head, I like the way he sees things - first to establish yourself completely as a player in your club. Once you’re completely established, go for internationals.

"But you cannot always decide that when you’re a young player. Everybody who is 20 would love to be called by England."
