England midfielder Jack Wilshere is determined to add to his international tally following his brace against Slovenia in Euro 2016 qualifying.
Wilshere opened his account for England with a pair of long-range strikes as Roy Hodgson’s men stayed perfect in Group E with a 3-2 win in Slovenia on Sunday.
The 23-year-old had gone 27 matches without an England goal prior to the qualifier in Ljubljana.
“It’s a great feeling,” Wilshere said. “It’s nice to get off the mark.
“Just playing for your country is a fantastic feeling but scoring is even better.
“Hopefully I can get a few more in the future.”
Wilshere – back fit after returning from injury towards the back end of Arsenal’s 2014-15 campaign – added: “I’m in a strange position where I don’t want the season to end. I’ve just come back.
“I’m playing well but luckily this year it’s just a three-week break.
“I’ll have a week’s rest and then I’ll get back in the gym to maintain my fitness because next season is a big season for me.”
