Arsenal left-back Gibbs played the full 90 minutes as Roy Hodgson’s men sealed a 5-0 win over San Marino in their Euro 2016 qualifier on Thursday night.
It was Gibbs’ first start for England for four years, and Wenger was thrilled to see the 25-year-old handed a re-call.
“I like it and there’s nobody more happy than me to see him [in the England team again],” Wenger told Arsenal Player.
“I always trusted Kieran Gibbs to have that in his locker and to see that he finally gets his chance again is great news for me.
“I think mentally he has made a step forward in the last month, by taking more responsibility and by showing his huge potential.
“It’s all there for Kieran and I believe that everybody at the club thinks it’s justice done that he’s back in the national team.
“He has had very difficult days. There’s nothing that tests your mental strength more than the repetition of injuries. We have a fierce example here, in Abou Diaby.
“Kieran has had his problems but he’s recovered every time and I’m very happy for him.”
