Hodgson hails work at Liverpool academy
England coach Roy Hodgson is big fan of the work being done at Liverpool's academy.
Hodgson has named Raheem Sterling in his squad for the friendly against Sweden.
He said: "I've got to say, when I went to Liverpool, I was impressed by the academy and some of the players that we had there. Players that are there today like Andre Wisdom, Raheem Sterling, and Martin Kelly played a lot of games with me in the Europa League in particular. So it's very nice to see them coming through and doing so well, like Sterling two years on, stepping up from being a talented potential first-team player to being a very obvious first-team player."
