Arsenal playmaker Wilshere can handle England expectations

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere admits he feels pressure being England's big hope.

Wilshere, though, is adamant he can handle all the attention the tag brings.

"It's brought pressure on me. I'm not sure it's unwanted pressure," he told "I think when you play at the highest level, there is pressure all the time."

He added: "Just because we don't play like Spain doesn't mean we haven't got a high level of technical ability. We're changing our game all the time and we want to adapt it to a level where we are going to be able to win things at an international level.

"If that requires passing it around a bit more, then we'll do it. But at the moment, we're doing all right. We've got to the World Cup, so we'll stick to our guns for the moment."
