Arsenal academy graduate Jack Wilshere has been threatening consistency in his performance level throughout the current season - as his return of 25 tackles, 11 dribbles, 80% passing accuracy, creation of 10 key passes, one goal and one assist from 14 appearances in all competitions thus far is testament to.
Wilshere may still only be 22-years-old but he has an abundance of elite-level competition behind him now and even acknowledges himself that it is time to consistently leave his mark on each and every match he participates in.
Earlier this evening, against San Marino at Wembley Stadium, the versatile midfielder did just that.
Wilshere was voted the ITV man of the match as he provided great industry in the central areas. His passing was on point and he even assisted Wayne Rooney for the second goal of the night.
Wilshere did not score one of the five goals struck against San Marino, but he was deemed the best on the pitch but he claims a professional team performance on England's behalf to have been the opponent's undoing.
"We done what we had to do," he said on ITV. "We knew we were going to win, it was just a matter of keeping concentration.
"Once we got the goal, we knew we could get a few. I thought we were really professional tonight and we showed San Marino respect."
