Jack Wilshere capped a crazy few weeks with the “best night of his Arsenal career” on Wednesday.

It’s been a whirlwind season for the 19-year-old midfielder who was man of the match against Barcelona after going toe-to-toe with Spanish World Cup winners Xavi and Andreas Iniesta.

Wilshere made his full England debut against Denmark on February 9 and followed that with an instrumental performance for his club side to help give Arsenal a vital 2-1 win on a hair-raising night at Emirates Stadium.

“It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, probably the best couple of weeks of my life,” he said. “It’s the biggest night of my Arsenal career so far.

“Definitely, without a doubt [Barcelona are the best team I’ve ever played against], with players like Xavi, Iniesta and [Lionel] Messi. I’ve been watching those players for years.

“By far it’s the biggest night of my Arsenal career so far, like I said, [but] we’ve still got a job to do at the Nou Camp.”
