Arsenal midfielder Wilshere: I can handle big expectations

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere says he can handle the expectations around his comeback.

England face Sweden in a friendly on November 14 and Wilshere, who lasted 60 minutes at the weekend, acknowledges there will be talk of a call-up for the fixture.

"Football is like that, especially with England. You become a better player when you are injured, you become a world beater when you are injured," he said.

"When you come back, there is an expectation, but I can deal with it.

"That is part and parcel of football and there are older players here who can keep my feet on the ground and help me.

"Just for now, I am happy to be back. I am happy to be out there and healthy again. I was just running round smiling - that feeling was amazing."
