England coach Hodgson wary asking too much from Arsenal's Wilshere

England coach Roy Hodgson is reluctant to demand too much from Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere.

Wilshere will start tonight against Brazil.

"I'm wary Jack is only 21," said the England manager.

"He had a fantastic debut two years ago and has missed a year of football, so I want to play down expectations, but you can't deny he is an exceptional talent.

"We saw a bit of him in Stockholm, but that was Jack just coming back. He'd only played a couple of games for Arsenal. Now we're seeing a player who's much more in tune."
