New faces given their chance to shine during international friendly.
Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling is set to make his England debut by playing from the start of Wednesday’s friendly against Sweden.
Sterling, at 17 years and 342 days, would become the fifth-youngest England player ever.
Tottenham’s Steven Caulker and Leon Osman of Everton are also set for their international debuts in Stockholm.

Roy Hodgson will also hand Steven Gerrard his 100th cap and will look to a side mixed with youth and experience to take on Sweden in Stockholm tonight.
