England captain Steven Gerrard has been cleared to play against Sweden on Wednesday.

The 32-year old midfielder underwent a precautionary scan on his knee after sustaining a slight injury in yesterday's 1-1 draw with Chelsea but is now available for the Three Lions.

Gerrard will now make his 100th appearance for his country to join the likes of David Beckham, Sir Bobby Charlton, Bobby Moore and Peter Shilton in that milestone bracket.

"Steven Gerrard has been cleared to travel with the England squad to Sweden having undergone a precautionary scan on Monday afternoon," read a statement on the FA's official website.

"The England captain reported to the team hotel following Liverpool's 1-1 draw with Chelsea, and having received positive news is set to win his 100th cap against Sweden on Wednesday evening in Stockholm."
