Jack Wilshere admits he will need time to recapture his best form after making his England comeback in Wednesday's friendly international with Sweden in the Friends Arena.
The Arsenal midfielder put 17 months of injury frustration behind him after suffering a stress fracture of his ankle by playing the final half hour of England's 4-2 defeat. Wilshere knows he is still short of sharpness after only a trio of games for the Gunners, but is delighted to be back playing for club and country.
He said: "I don't know how long it will be before I can say 'I'm back.' I'm not really sure. This is my first long-term injury. We will see. I'm sure you lot (the media) will notice when I'm back to my best!"
