Sweden vs. England takes place tonight.

The game, which takes place at the Swedbank Arena in Stockholm, is scheduled to kick off at 19:30 GMT, and airs live in the UK on ITV 1/ITV 1 HD.

England captain Steven Gerrard has flown out to Sweden with the rest of Roy Hodgson's squad after overcoming a knee injury and could play in Wednesday's friendly.

The Liverpool midfielder is set to be joined in Hodgson's side by Everton's Leon Osman, who at the age of the 31 is preparing to win his first cap.

"I hoped my time hadn't passed me by," said Osman.

"As an English lad I had a desire to play for my country and I was hopeful it might happen.

"I had stopped looking for my name in the squad every time, but I never gave up hope."

Speaking before flying out to Sweden, Osman revealed the moment he was informed by Everton boss David Moyes that he was part of Hodgson's squad.

"We were out on the training pitch and I saw a lot of staff start to filter to the side of the pitch," he said.

"The next thing the manager called us into a circle and announced I was in the squad. I got a big cheer from the side, lots of head ruffles and kidney punches. It was a great moment.

"I seem to have developed late in the game. I didn't make my debut until I was 21. And I wasn't a regular until I was 23. I've done everything late so it doesn't surprise me that I'm here now."
