Jack Wilshere says his call-up to the England squad has come "a bit too soon" but is delighted that Roy Hodgson has picked him.

The Arsenal midfielder is in the England squad to face Sweden on Wednesday despite only making three appearances for his club since a 15-month injury lay-off.

He told BBC Football Focus: "Maybe it is a bit too soon to be called up.

"But it is great for my head and my confidence to know I am in the new manager's plans."
