Arsenal youngster backed for England captaincy

England boss Fabio Capello believes Arsenal youngster Jack Wilshere is a future Three Lions skipper.

The 19-year-old has already made two appearances for the England senior national team.

“He will be England captain one day,” Capello said. “Jack Wilshere needs more caps but he is a real leader. I saw how he spoke with the referee [against Denmark] and how he spoke to the other players. It is difficult to find someone so young with such a big personality.

“I remember two defenders, Paolo Maldini and Franco Baresi, and one attacker, Raul, who was 19 at Real Madrid, but for personality and confidence on the pitch, he is the best young midfielder I have seen for his age.”
