England coach Roy Hodgson has announced his starting XI for their clash with Sweden tonight.
"Steven Caulker and Raheem have been playing regularly for the Under-21s and have made that transition," said Hodgson.
"I thought it was time to give him a chance because he has been one of the unsung heroes of a very good football club and a very good football team.
"He is a very energetic player. And the fact he is 31 surprises me because he plays like a much younger man.
"Let's hope that continues and I won't have to worry about his birth certificate."
