// A bit of a hack but it works// The article snippet is wrapped onto a second line, even when #article-sub is emptyif( $("div#article-sub").children().length == 0 ) {$("div#article-sub").remove();} England coach Fabio Capello could do worse than pick Kieran Gibbs according to Arsene Wenger.

The Arsenal coach has hailed his left-sided prospect as a future England international.

Indeed Wenger thinks that Gibbs could be ready to push for a place in England's World Cup squad next summer.

Capello was with coach Stuart Pearce at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday to see Gibbs in action as a young Arsenal side beat Liverpool 2-1 in the Carling Cup.

Gibbs has only played a handful of games this term, but Wenger insists he will be seeing more action, which he feels could push him into the England reckoning.

"Gibbs will get games and has already this season," said Wenger.

"If Capello asks my opinion, I'll give a positive one. He's ready to step up."
