Jack Wilshere admits he did not expect to be called back into the England squad so soon but is glad to be in the future plans of Roy Hodgson.

The 20-year-old has only just returned to action with Arsenal after more than a year on the sidelines, but was picked in the senior national squad for next week's friendly in Sweden.

Speaking to BBC Football Focus, Wilshere said: "Maybe it is a bit too soon (to be called up) because I have only played three games since I have been back. But it is great for my head and my confidence to know I am in the new manager's plans."
