Jack Wilshere is determined to put a number of games together so he can get back to his best form.
The talented 21-year old Arsenal midfielder has battled over the past few years due to ankle injuries but is hoping he can build on his full pre-season by playing plenty of minutes for England against Scotland on Wednesday night and taking that into the Premier League campaign.
"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."
