England captain Steven Gerrard will win his 100th cap in tonight's friendly international with Sweden at the Friends Arena.

Gerrard will become the sixth English player to reach the milestone - 12 years after making his debut - and is one of only four players in the side who started last month's World Cup qualifier in Poland.

Roy Hodgson hands debuts to Leon Osman, Raheem Sterling and Steve Caulker as England look to defend their unbeaten record in open play since he replaced Fabio Capello as head coach.

England team: Hart, Johnson, Cahill, Caulker, Baines, Gerrard, Osman, Cleverley, Young, Sterling, Welbeck.
