Gerrard led the Three Lions out for the 28th time as they defeated Scotland 3-2.
"I've got no doubt [that Wilshere can captain England]," said Gerrard.
"His quality, his example in training every day, he seems a level-headed kid, he wants to learn, he loves England, he’s going to be around the top for a long, long time. He ticks a lot of boxes when it comes down to other players following his lead.
"Obviously I’m really paranoid about putting too much pressure on any player, especially Jack, but he certainly has the quality to do that."
"I counted once and I've missed 20-odd caps [through injury] so there is nothing for him to worry out," he continued.
"There is a lot of time, it’s a long career. I’m sure once he gets to my age he will probably be sitting in my position with the armband on talking about another 100-cap player he’s that good.
"When I first came up against him at Anfield, you could see his quality straight away. From that moment really, I'm not thinking about Arsenal, I'm thinking of England and getting back out there with him and I’m excited he’s back."
