Jack Wilshere is convinced he will soon recover from serious foot injury and again be a star for the England team.

The 20-year-old Arsenal midfielder made his comeback against QPR last month and has since gone on to play two more games for the Gunners and had been recalled to the England squad for the friendly against Sweden..

Wilshere himself has been encouraged by the way he has played since he came back.

"I'm quite surprised actually," he told Arsenal Player. "When I first played in the [under-21s], I was really rusty and I think it was clear for everyone to see. Everyone was just being nice to me saying 'you played well'.

"Now I'm feeling better and better as every game goes on. There's no hiding place when you're playing at the Emirates, at Old Trafford and you're in front of everyone. You have to be at a certain standard so you don't let your team-mates and your fans down.

"Mentally it has been tough because you question yourself all the time. You go to the Emirates, you watch games and you think 'Has it got quicker? I don't remember it being this quick. Can I get back to this level that I was at before?'

"But I feel good now and hopefully, with a few more games, I can get back to my best."
