Wilshere keeps feet on the ground

Jack Wilshere is refusing to get carried away after a pivotal season which has seen him win a starting spot with Arsenal and England.

Wilshere, still only 19, was also named the PFA Young Player of the Year and is seen as the future of the England national side.

After another performance which drew praise in the 2-2 draw with Switzerland at Wembley, in which he won a crucial spot-kick after being brought down in the box by Arsenal team-mate Johan Djourou, Wilshere insisted he would not be complacent over his long-term future.

''There are still big players missing - the likes of Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard, who plays centre-mid,'' he said. ''I'm still 19. I've got a lot of work to do. I've got to come back in the summer and have a good pre-season and see if I can get back in the team next year.

''At the start of the season, there was talk of me going back to Bolton [on loan] and the manager [Arsene Wenger] said he'd be happy with me if I played 25 games,'' he said. ''I played 60 games. I've surprised myself, really, but hopefully I can do the same next year.

''I've still got a lot of work to do. I'm 19. There are good players at Arsenal who want to take my position and there are even better players with England who want to take my position. So I've got to work hard and try to keep myself in every team that I play in.''

Wilshere said of what was viewed as a disappointing draw with the Swiss: ''We had chances and, in football, you have to take your chances. We got the point - we could've taken all three.

''We know we could've won and been in a stronger position. We've got to play Montenegro yet and we're confident that we can go there and get three points.''

Wilshere was desperate to play for the Under-21s at the European Championships this month, but eventually Arsene Wenger and his coaching team got their way and the player will now spend the summer resting.

He said: ''I have to get my feet up. I've got four weeks off. I have to get ready for next season and there is a big tournament coming up (Euro 2012) and I have to be ready for that.

''I'm going to go away and get on a beach for a couple of weeks and then come back in pre-season rested and ready.''
