Jack Wilshere hints that the atmosphere in the England camp is better with Roy Hodgson as manager.

Jack Wilshere has hinted that the atmosphere within the England camp is better under manager Roy Hodgson than his predecessor Fabio Capello.

Wilshere started his first England international under Hodgson in England's 2-1 victory over Brazil at Wembley on Wednesday evening.

Arsenal midfielder Wilshere has said that the mood in the Three Lions squad has changed since he made his last start under Capello in June 2011.

"It's totally different from before," Wilshere told the London Evening Standard.

"For one, the manager has changed and all the staff have changed, too, so it's a totally different atmosphere. It's a nice atmosphere.

"There are more English people around and we get on really well and are more relaxed."

Wilshere has won seven caps for England since making his debut against Hungary in August 2010.
