Jack Wilshere has heaped praise upon his veteran international team mates Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard, admitting they were a pleasure to play with.
England manager Roy Hodgson lined up a three-man central midfield at last night's World Cup qualifier against Moldova, consisting of experienced duo, Lampard and Gerrard, in addition to Arsenal midfielder Wilshere.
This tactic used by the former Liverpool and Fulham manager was beneficial to England winning 4-0 last night, including goals from Gerrard, Lambert, and a brace from Welbeck.
Lampard and Gerrard have had to deal with claims that they can't play together throughout their international careers but seemed to work flawlessly together alongside Arsenal's young star.
The 21-year-old was delighted with playing alongside the experienced duo saying to reporters: “I’ve grown up watching Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard play, and it was a pleasure to play in there with them.
“It worked well. Me and Lamps were a bit higher, and Gerrard was playingthe sort of quarterback role.
“That suits his game – he’s got a great passing range, and Lamps getting forward was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet.”
