Wilshere unfazed by England pressure

8 February 2013 03:46

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere insists he can handle the 'high expectations' associated with playing for England.

The 21-year-old has been lavished with praise following his impressive performance in Wednesday's 2-1 friendly win over Brazil at Wembley.

But the playmaker is unfazed by such plaudits and is simply keen to make a long-term impact at international level.

"When you are playing well and you are in the national team, there are always going to be high expectations," Wilshere told reporters.

"But I think you have to deal with that. I used to come to Wembley to watch them play, so to play with them is a dream come true.

"Ten years at the top is something I want to do so, looking at those two, is something I look up to. I think they will carry on to the World Cup next year."
