Arsenal playmaker Wilshere big Balotelli fan

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere says he's a fan of Italy striker Mario Balotelli.

The AC Milan firebrand is sure to start against England in their World Cup opener on Saturday.

"First and foremost, we have to worry about him as a player," Wilshere told Sky Sports.

"He is a great player. We have seen that in the past. But we have got players who have played with him like Joe Hart, and we have defenders who have played against him in the Premier League.

"I don't think that will be a problem."
