Wilshere, who models his game in part on Gerrard, will play alongside the Liverpool man in midfield for England tonight against Brazil.
“Jack’s got a bit of everything: he can tackle, pass, get up and down the pitch, create a goal or score a goal,” said Gerrard. “He ticks almost every box, and he’s going to get better and better.
“He’s only 21 and a fantastic talent, and we’re delighted he’s back. He has the potential to become one of the best in the world. I don’t want to put any pressure on him, but having played against him recently and seen him in training, he’s a one-off. He’s a lot better than your normal Premier League midfielder.”
