Arsenal youngster Jack Wilshere could go to the World Cup finals in South Africa next year, according to England coach Fabio Capello.
The Italian saw Wilshere, who has only made one substitute appearance in the Premier League, star in the pre-season Emirates Cup tournament, scoring twice against Rangers.
"We have time before we have to decide if he will go to South Africa. It depends a lot on (Gunners boss) Arsene Wenger, if he will play him," Capello said of the 17-year-old.
"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."
