Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere hails England's 4-3-3 formation: 'It works well for everyone'

The Arsenal youngster praises Liverpool's club record signing Andy Carroll for grabbing his first goal for the senior national team in only his second appearance
Jack Wilshere has hailed the new 4-3-3 system employed by England manager Fabio Capello.

The former Real Madrid boss has been known to be fond of playing two men up front, but broke his tendency to do so by fielding the new formation against Wales and Ghana, with the Arsenal youngster playing a pivotal role in both games.

The midfielder believes that the new formation has been beneficial to the players.

"The 4-3-3 system suits me and I think it suits the team better," said Wilshere, according to Sky Sports.

"There was different personnel and I think [Gareth] Barry was great and [James] Milner was great. It works well for everyone. We’re all technically good players and we can play in that position."

Andy Carroll made only his second appearance for the Three Lions and was able to nab his first international goal with an arrowed first-half shot.

"That’ll be massive for him," said Wilshere. "He’s been brilliant this season, he got himself a good move [to Liverpool] and he’s going to be brilliant for the future of English football. He got a good goal tonight and hopefully his first of many."
