Midfielder Jack Wilshere has declared the atmosphere in the England squad has improved since former manager Fabio Capello left.

And the Arsenal playmaker thinks Roy Hodgson’s man-management has proved to be beneficial to the team.

“It’s totally different from before. For one, the manager has changed and all the staff have changed, too, so it’s a totally different atmosphere. It’s a nice atmosphere,” Wilshere said.

The rising England leader, named man of the match in Wednesday’s victory over Brazil at Wembley Stadium, also hinted that having more fellow countrymen in the coaching staff is helping creating a better ambience in the team.

“There are more English people around and we get on really well and are more relaxed,” he admitted.

Wilshere, unanimously praised after his performance in the friendly game against the five-time World Cup winners, thinks the Three Lions are going through a stage in which the mixture of youth and experience is working to their adavantage.

“We have some good young players now and some with experience, so it’s important we have got a good blend and it worked well.”

Despite the flurry of flattering comments about his personal performance, the Gunners midfielder remains with a humble and self-demanding attitude.

“I am never happy with where I am. I always try to improve and work hard in training,” he added.
