Wayne Rooney Says Jack Wilshere Was "Brilliant" For England

Hailed by some as England’s answer to Xavi Hernández or Andrés Iniesta, 19-year old Jack Wilshere presents England boss Fabio Capello with the dilemma of how to make the most of his talent.  

Wayne Rooney had only praise for Jack Wilshere's impressive first England start. Wilshere, 19, played midfield in his full Three Lions debut.

Roo became England's youngest ever player when he made his bow aged 17 and probably made an inner comparison to his own career start.

 "I thought Jack Wilshere did really well.

"He is really composed on the ball and really good to play with. You can see the potential he has got."

Ashley Young sealed the 2-1 win in Denmark and hopes Fabio Capello's will choose him to play in next month's Euro 2012 qualifier against Wales.

"With Ashley, he has been playing behind the main forward for Villa this season.

"You could see he has benefited from that with the way he did against Denmark. He got his goal and he's always a threat in there.

"The manager is trying to give players a chance and they are starting to take those chances.

"The whole game was a valuable experience but especially for those lads who haven't got that many games under their belts.

"It will be a good experience for them for the games ahead like the Wales match next month.

"We are looking to that game now and hopefully we can get the three points there."
