Wenger proud to see Arsenal players in England squad

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is proud to see more of his players making the England squad.

Both Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott played starring roles in Wednesday night’s 2-1 victory over Brazil, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was on the bench.

Carl Jenkinson and Kieran Gibbs have also had their chance in recent months and Wenger is pleased with the way the Club is helping the national team.

“The Arsenal players who played [against Brazil] were quite influential,” the manager told Arsenal Player. “Walcott has done very well. Wilshere has done very well. Oxlade-Chamberlain unfortunately couldn’t get any part in the game.

“It shows that Arsenal contributes more and more to the England performances. I’m very happy about that. I said many times that we have a core of British and English players who are at a top level, and Jack is of course one of them."
