Jack Wilshere has returned to the England squad for next week's friendly with Sweden in Stockholm.

The Arsenal midfielder has not featured for his country since making his fifth appearance against Switzerland in June 2011.

He has only just returned after 16 months out through injury and Arsene Wenger had cautioned against him being propelled straight back into the international arena. However, Roy Hodgson has opted to select Wilshere anyway.
