The 34-year-old confirmed on Monday that he would not be playing for the Three Lions again after making 114 appearances for his country.
Wilshere has repeatedly said that Gerrard inspired him when he was younger, and the 22-year-old has again credited the veteran with having a positive influence on his career.
Amazing international career, inspirational Captain, an absolute honour to play with someone I looked up to growing up and still do! #SG4— Jack Wilshere (@JackWilshere) July 21, 2014
Gerrard scored 14 goals during his 114 appearances for England.
