Wenger has revealed that he was delighted to see his players so well represented in the national side, which he feels is a testament to their quality and of his side's academy.
He told the club's official website: "First of all [the reason for it is that] we gave chances to players from our academy. I cannot say the Danny Welbeck situation was planned for five years.
"I try to buy the best English players, [Theo] Walcott and [Calum] Chambers are a consequence of that.
"They know if they are good they get a chance. I am very proud when I see five England players wearing the Arsenal shirt and that we still have Walcott, who was not there."
Arsenal face Hull City in their Premier League clash later today.
