Hodgson pleased Arsenal's Wilshere back in England action

England coach Roy Hodgson is delighted Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is back for the country.

Hodgson reiterated how important midfielder Wilshere is to England after victory over Scotland. The Arsenal star played the first half before being replaced.

Hodgson said: "He's very important to us. No question. He has that ability to unlock doors with his incredible footwork and that fantastic change of pace.

"For a young man he has a very good understanding of the game. He was caught in possession once which led to a counter, but we have to take responsibility for that. We're always preaching to players to be confident and bold and you'll pay the price sometimes."
