Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is convinced Arsenal youngster Jack Wilshere can be England's saviour.

Redknapp feels a fit and in-form Wilshere, who missed the whole of Arsenal's season through injury, could help England improve their ability to keep possession.

Writing in his column on Betfair, he said: "It's a depressing way to go out as we were dominated by an Italian team that hasn't looked that special at Euro 2012.

"In Andrea Pirlo, Italy had a magician on the pitch...but England do have one of our own in the shape of Jack Wilshere and that's one reason to believe we can improve in the future."
