One of the best players for Arsenal on the night, midfielder Jack Wilshere was delighted after the Gunners reached the Carling Cup Final on Tuesday.
Speaking to Arsenal TV Online after the game, the 19-year old – who praised Nicklas Bendtner for getting a great goal – explained how what was important was to get the first goal as he added how the Gunners fought until the very end, scored three goals for the fourth consecutive game and are going to Wembley to play Birmingham City on February 27.
Asked if the players were nervous at half-time, the youngster admitted they were – considering the scoreline – and how manager Arsene Wenger asked his players to keep going and be patient.
On winning trophies, the Englishman concluded by saying how the players are looking forward to the Wembley final which could be the start of something special but also how they are fully aware that there are important FA Cup and Premier League games coming up.
On Tuesday, Wilshere said:
Like I said the other day, we needed the first goal before it opens up and we showed good spirit, fought until the end, got three goals and we’re going to Wembley. We missed a couple of chances early on but Nicklas got a great first goal and it opened up.
[Wenger] told us to keep going, not to get nervous, we kept going and it worked. Ipswich were great, they fought us all the way, credit to them they are brilliant, better than we expected. The final is in February, if we win this then we’ll get the confidence going into the end of the season and then hopefully get more trophies.
We look forward to Wembley but we also got Premier League games and we need to keep going, keep getting the points and push on. We’re still in all competitions, that’s what we want.
