Arsenal academy chief Brady delighted with Wilshere, Gibbs England selection

Arsenal academy chief Liam Brady is delighted seeing Jack Wilshere and Kieran Gibbs in the England squad.

Fabio Capello's current squad contains four players who have passed through Arsenal's Academy - Ashley Cole, Theo Walcott, Gibbs and Wilshere.

"It is great news for the Academy," Brady told

"It is great news for Jack and for Kieran and I am sure they will handle it very well.

"When I didn't see them in the England Under-21 squad I thought they would make the senior side. It seems Capello is making a statement that he wants to bring new blood in.

"It reflects very well for the Academy to have two players picked for England. And remember we [developed] Ashley Cole as well."
