Wenger: Great club form will help World Cup hopefuls

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes a successful season with the Gunners can only help drive their World Cup hopefuls on to success in Brazil.

Jack Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and even full-back Carl Jenkinson are all in the mix to make Roy Hodgson's England squad for next summer's showpiece tournament.

You do what is right for the club. If the players can do well at both levels that is even better.

I remember 1998, (Patrick) Vieira and (Emmanuel) Petit had an outstanding season here and they won the World Cup after (with France), so the positives of one go into the other.
