Capello praises Wilshere and the two goalscorers in Denmark.
England Manager Fabio Capello was full of praise for his team after they came from behind to win 2-1 in Denmark with goals from Aston Villa duo Darren Bent and Ashley Young.
Liverpool defender Daniel Agger headed the Danes in front with just eight minutes gone, but Bent soon levelled the scores with a close-range tap in.
Young then popped up in the second half to stroke home his first goal for the Three Lions and give Capello's men their first win since September. There was also an impressive first start for Arsenal youngster Jack Wilshere, who played the opening 45 minutes in cnetral midfield.
Capello said: “I am happy with the result and happy with the performance of some of the players.
“[Jack] Wilshere did well and played with confidence and made an interesting debut. It is too early to decide who will play against Wales, but it was an important game for him and for me.”
He added: “Darren Bent has scored a goal and he had a chance to score a second goal - twice. He played well and worked a lot and helped the team when we needed to press.
“Ashley was in a new position [for us], but the same position for Aston Villa he played well, ran a lot and scored a goal. I think all the team played well and no-one is injured which is really important for the clubs.”
