Wilkshire will stand in for suspended Rangers defender Craig Moore.
"Just playing in the Olympics is special enough, but being captain is a terrific honour to have," he said.
"So far, the experience has been good - however, the best experience we can have here is to win the gold medal," the 22-year-old told City's website.
