Arsenal whiz Wilshere: England call-up surreal experience

Arsenal whizkid Jack Wilshere admits his first England call-up last month was a surreal experience.

Wilshere also made his breakthrough at international level, winning his first senior England cap in the 2-1 win over Hungary at Wembley last month.

He admitted: "Sometimes I just had to pinch myself sitting in the changing room next to Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard.

"I was ill the night before the match but I thought I did OK even though I was only on the pitch for the last 10 minutes or so.

"Hopefully, I can get more time with England soon but, at the moment, I'm trying to concentrate on playing in the Arsenal first team."
