The 18-year-old scored his fourth free-kick of the season in a 4-0 win over Leicester for Wilshere’s side on Saturday, while Osman Kamara scored twice and Chido Obi-Martin also netted.
Wilshere had praise for Polish midfielder Rosiak’s work on the training field, which is clearly paying off in matches.
‘He’s a great example to the players because he practices and practices,’ said the former England midfielder.
‘Of course, there are other sides to the game you can practice but he puts in serious dedication to his craft of taking free-kicks.
‘He actually tried a bit of a different technique today but it was unsavable. A great goal.’

Kamara also earned some praise from his manager after his two goals against the Foxes, with Wilshere saying: ‘It’s been tough for him at times this year because teams are doubling up on him and he’s got to find new ways to beat his man.
‘The goals today gave him confidence and I was happy with his performance today.’

Wilshere and his side were under some pressure after a 7-1 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool in the FA Youth Cup last week and he was pleased with their response.
‘We needed to show character after last week. It was tough for the team as it’s probably the first time the players have experienced bad press, and negativity and you need character to overcome it,’ he said.
‘You need to get back to the drawing board, turn up to training and play games even harder. I asked them to show personality by being confident and getting on the ball.
‘There was a lot of personality all over the pitch today so I’m very happy with that.’
