Wilshere back for England

Jack Wilshere returns to the England squad for the friendly against Sweden later this month.

The Arsenal midfielder has just returned to action after a 16 month absence through injury but is still one of the brightest prospects in world football.

He is joined in the squad by Jonjo Shelvey and Raheem Sterling who have both started the season in fine form for Liverpool.

There is a surprise call up for 31 year old Leon Osman of Everton, but his presence in the squad is a fine indication of the strength and ability of the players at Everton.

Elsewhere, Ashley Cole misses out on the chance to win his 100th cap through injury while Steven Gerrard looks set to captain the side as he becomes only the sixth england player to get to 100.

The full Squad: Hart (Manchester City), Ruddy (Norwich), Forster (Celtic); Baines (Everton), Bertrand (Chelsea), Cahill (Chelsea), Caulker (Tottenham), Jagielka (Everton), Johnson (Liverpool), Shawcross (Stoke), Walker (Tottenham); Cleverley (Manchester United), Gerrard (Liverpool, capt), Lennon (Tottenham), Osman (Everton), Shelvey (Liverpool), Sterling (Liverpool), Walcott (Arsenal), Wilshere (Arsenal), Young (Manchester United); Rooney (Manchester United), Sturridge (Chelsea), Welbeck (Manchester United).
