Caulker, Osman, Sterling to start



England coach Roy Hodgson has revealed he will hand international debuts to Steven Caulker, Leon Osman and Raheem Sterling in Wednesday's friendly against Sweden in Stockholm.

Everton midfielder Osman has been called up for the first time, while Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Steven Caulker and Liverpool winger Sterling have received call-ups before but are yet to make their debuts.

Hodgson revealed on Tuesday that Caulker will partner Chelsea's Gary Cahill at centre-back, with Osman selected alongside captain Steven Gerrard – who will win his 100th cap – and Manchester United's Tom Cleverley in midfield.

Sterling, 17, will form a three-man attack alongside Manchester United pair Danny Welbeck and Ashley Young at the new Friends Arena.

Five other players are in line to win their first England caps on Wednesday – Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster, Stoke City defender Ryan Shawcross, Chelsea left-back Ryan Bertrand, Arsenal full-back Carl Jenkinson and Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha.
