Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Benik Afobe is delighted to see Jack Wilshere win the FA Cup with Arsenal.

Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Benik Afobe has taken to social networking site Twitter to congratulate Jack Wilshere on winning the FA Cup for the second season in a row with Arsenal.

The Gunners defeated their Premier League rivals Aston Villa 4-0 in the final of the prestigious competition at London’s Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening.

England international forward Theo Walcott put the North London outfit in the lead in the 40th minute, and Chilean star Alexis Sanchez doubled the advantage five minutes into the second half.

German defender Per Mertesacker made it 3-0 to Arsenal with a header just past the hour mark, and France international striker Olivier Giroud wrapped up the comprehensive win late on.

Midfielder Wilshere did not start the encounter, but he came on as a substitute for Mesut Ozil in the 77th minute.

Afobe, who is good friends with the England international and joined Wolves from Arsenal in the January transfer window, has taken to Twitter to express his delight at the 23-year-old winning the FA Cup yet again.
