Gerrard cleared


STOCKHOLM — England captain Steven Gerrard has been cleared to travel with the rest of Roy Hodgson’s squad to Sweden for Thursday’s friendly.

Report by BBC Sport

The 32-year-old Liverpool midfielder underwent a precautionary scan on a knee injury suffered in Sunday’s 1-1 draw against Chelsea.

Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha has won his first England call-up.

The 20-year-old earned his place after the withdrawal of five players from the squad. He is the first Championship outfield player to be called up since Jay Bothroyd in 2010. Arsenal’s Carl Jenkinson and Tottenham’s Tom Huddlestone are also in the squad for the friendly.
