Arsenal starlet Wilshere nailed on for first England call

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is set for a maiden England call-up.

Wilshere is in the box-seat for a shock England call-up for next week's friendly against Hungary.

The Arsenal midfield star, 18, edged closer to his first full cap after being left out of the Under-21 squad.

Stuart Pearce's side face Uzbekistan on Tuesday but Wilshere has not been included despite being eligible.

He grabbed the headlines at the weekend in the Emirates Cup and Three Lions boss Fabio Capello is a big fan.

Fellow Gunner Theo Walcott, 21, left out of the World Cup squad, could also be recalled.
