Arsenal’s Wilshere, Everton’s Osman make England cut

England boss Roy Hodgson has included Jack Wilshere and Leon Osman in his 23-man squad for the November 14 friendly with Sweden.

Arsenal young gun Wilshere has only recently returned to club football following a 17-month injury absence whilst Everton’s Osman gets his first senior call-up at the age of 31 after some impressive form for the Toffees.

Joining these two are inexperienced Liverpool pair Jonjo Shelvey and Raheem Sterling, Chelsea’s Ryan Bertrand and Tottenham’s Steven Caulker among the usual names such as captain Steven Gerrard, Joe Hart, Wayne Rooney and Gary Cahill.
