Jonjo Shelvey and Raheem Sterling have been called up to Roy Hodgson’s England squad for the friendly match against Sweden in Stockholm next Wednesday.
The pair were brought into the senior England set-up for the first time earlier this season and Shelvey made his international debut as a substitute in the 5-0 win over San Marino in October.
20-year-old Shelvey is currently in Moscow preparing for Liverpool’s Europa League tie against Anzhi tonight, whilst Sterling has been rested by Brendan Rodgers and has not travelled to Russia.
Steven Gerrard is set to make his 100th appearance for the Three Lions, following on from his landmark 600th outing for the Reds on Sunday.
The other Liverpool player named in Hodgson’s 23-man squad is full-back Glen Johnson.
