There are a great number of players out there with terrific technical qualities. There are some players whose footwork is sublime, some whose vision on the field is demonstrably better than their peers and some who never seem to tire.
It's rare to find those qualities in one player, as is the case with Wilshere. But it's rarer still for such a confluence of talents in a player whose personality and eagerness are palpable. The midfielder is not a player who gives up, and he's largely tamed the over-aggression that marred his game prior to breaking into the first team.
As a few Manchester United players can attest, Wilshere is a player who is willing to make a tackle, whether it's five minutes into a game, or 85 minutes into a game. He wants the ball, and when he has it he likes to drive at the opposition. He's fiery, he's aggressive on and off the ball and, in time, he will be a winner in some form or another. Such success will breed more, for Arsenal or England, and will only build on what is already a strong foundation.
That Arsene Wenger gave Wilshere the No.10 jersey is a testament to the faith the Frenchman has in him. That Wilshere accepted it is a testament to his confidence, as a 20-year-old, that he is ready to shoulder the responsibilities that generally go along with it.
