Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere said he is enjoying his football after Thursday's goalless draw with Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League.

The 0-0 draw in north London means Arsene Wenger's team have made sure of qualification from Group H with two games to spare.

Wilshere played the full 90 minutes and the England international told ITV Sport afterwards: "I feel good.

"I've played a few games now and I'm training hard, I'm trying to get in a team with world-class players which is difficult but i'll keep trying."

Asked about his future at the club and his recent omission from the England squad Wilshere replied: "I have to take it training session by training session, game by game. Every time I get an opportunity I need to show the manager what I can do.

"I'm doing all I can to stay fit - there could be a tackle on my ankle any time. I'm not thinking about that though, I'm thinking positive and I'm happy to be back in an Arsenal shirt."

"The squad was announced and I'm not in it, I've got to deal with that. I've got to get on the training ground and work hard in the gym. When I get the chance on the pitch I can show the Arsenal manager and the England manager what I can do."
