Wilshere back in England squad



England midfielder Jack Wilshere has returned to the England squad for the friendly next week against Sweden after being out of contention since last year because of various injuries.

The Arsenal player was called up Thursday despite club manager Arsene Wenger urging caution about how the midfielder is used because he has only just returned to action.

Wilshere's last England appearance was against Switzerland in June 2011.

In Stockholm on Wednesday, captain Steven Gerrard is due to make his 100th England appearance.

Everton midfielder Leon Osman will be hoping to win his first cap after being called up by Hodgson for the first time.
