Capello Not Ruling Wilshere Out

Arsenal youngster Jack Wilshere is not being ruled out of possible world cup selection next summer by Fabio Capello, who seems to rate the teenager very highly.

From Vital England:

Jack Wilshere is not quite a name that has sprung into the public eye overnight, as the Arsenal youngster has been known for sometime, but his impact most recently has caught the eye of Fabio Capello: 'he surprised me. Really. I saw him last year two times because he played in the Carling Cup and he has improved a lot now.

'He plays without fear, with confidence. And the other players passed the ball always to him. This is not normal to be so young and so good.'

The 17-year-old had been touted as a player that could have possibly been included in the England squad that faces Holland on Wednesday, but this was not the case, although a call-up during the course of the season that might then see Wilshere go to next summers world cup finals was not ruled out...

Can we not just let him concerntrate in getting in the Arsenal squad and U21's? Why do we have to over-sensationalise every lad who shows a bit of promise in this country.

Navydave, spot on mate. Jack MUST play at least 20 or 30 games for Arsenal, as a regular, to even be considered for the national team. Then, and only after a consultation with AW, should Jack be selected for the U21's. Isn't the whole U21 thing a vehicle to look at players who might be of an International standard, and if good enough, promote them to the full England side ?.

Arsenal are a better team than England so why does he have to play a certain number of games for us. If he is good enough, he should play.
Tom14
With you there Tom14. Take a look back at ex Arsenal and other players ages. Duncan Edwards, Boy Bastin, Rooney, Pele, Maradona, Owen; if they have the ability pick them. Jack is a far more polished article than Theo, and I really believe Gibbs will also be on the bench. Can not see the reason why they have to play 20 to 30 games for us. next year he will be18 come the world cup 18 and a half. If he has the ability then blood him.

He's just been called into the U21's for tomorrow!
navydave
I'm not saying he's not ols enough. Plus, there is no point comparing a club side with an international side. I'm saying he needs to prove himself and play his way into the national side!
navydave
Tom, it's not fair on Jack to be considered for the England team when we have only seen ' glimpses ' of him at Arsenal. Apart from the odd goal, and one or two ' touches ', Jack is a million miles away from the England side. If he was picked for England, and had a bad game, the press would destroy him. " He's not an International " or " Jack's out of his depth " would be the headlines. Why the rush ? Let him have a season with us, and at a push, the odd u21 appearance. For God's sake, it's why the u21's exist. What other purpose do they serve, apart from being a 'stepping stone ' to the full team ?
CockneyRich1
At this rate, Wenger will play less and less of Jack, if only to protect him. That will be a shame, although necessary.
prits
imo it better that Wilshere plays in the U21's, rather that the full England squad, as this will give him time to develope into a full England player. Also playing in the U21's should take the pressure off him.
hackneyval
I'm with Rich on this one. When the World Cup approaches, then Capello should include Jack in the friendlies running up to it, to integrate him into the squad, but for now it's best to take him out of the limelight and let him work to improve at Arsenal and at U21 level.
ArsenalRob
I never said he should be in there, I said if he is good enough he should be in - no matter what age he is. If he proves he is good enough over the next two/three months he should be in.
Tom14
I don't think he would be good enough right now, U21 squad is there for a reason. Leave Jack alone and let him develop in his own him and pick him when he is good and ready, make sense. Right now he's a boy, let him grow up. I fkn hate the media.
FuiKaka
I think you guys hugely underestimate Capello, he is no fool, and he won't rish a youngster...and I tell you he is not a gambler unlike Sven who took walcott so early in his career to world cup... I think jack can actually perform for england and it would serve him a world of good to work under capello and with teammates such as gerrard, lampard.....I dont think he is a starter but maybe he should be a bench player for england and then we could see how he does...i think the U21 are useless they dont tell you anything at all....after all it was portugal's team of u21 that won the world cup....what happened when they got older they won nothing
ibrahiy
Why should the England manager "rule our" sokme young player he isn't even considering. He probably hasn't "ruled out" Robbie Fowler either.
Sindbad
I highly doubt he'll go unless he has an exceptional season in which he starts many games, which he won't. Gerrard, Lampard, Joe Cole, Ashley Young, James Milner, Shaun Wright-Phillips etc will all be ahead of him in all probability.
