Samir Nasri hailed Jack Wilshere after the Arsenal youngster inspired a 4-1 victory at Tottenham in the Carling Cup.
Wilshire provided goals assists for Henri Lansbury's opener and Andrey Arshavin's fourth, while Nasri also scored two penalties early into extra-time.
Afterwards Nasri hailed the 18-year-old's credentials for the England team.
He told Sky Sports: "He's a really good player.
"Last year when he went (on loan) to Bolton it helped him because he played a lot of games with Bolton.
"Now he's ready to play and be a good player for Arsenal.
"And I think England need a player like him. Jack is a wonderful prospect for the future."
Nasri also revealed he had agreed with manager Arsene Wenger that he would take the spot-kicks on Tuesday after Tomas Rosicky missed a penalty against Sunderland on Saturday.
He won the first penalty from Sebastien Bassong before substitute Marouane Chamakh was fouled by debutant Steven Caulker for the second, with Nasri despatching both spot-kicks with aplomb.
He added: "I provoked the foul and then I didn't take the penalty (against Sunderland).
"But after I talked with the boss and said, 'Next time I will take the penalty', and I scored."
Wilshere is now hoping Arsenal can go all the way to Wembley in the competition, but cautioned: "We don't want to get ahead of ourselves.
"In the last couple of years we fell short.
"Hopefully we can concentrate on each match as they come and hopefully we can win it."
