England coach Roy Hodgson has handed a shock call-up to highly rated Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha.

The 20-year-old has been capped five times at Under-21 level and attracted the attention of a host of top clubs. Now Hodgson has recognised that quality by handing Zaha a spot in his revised squad for Wednesday's friendly with Sweden.

Zaha is joined in the squad by Carl Jenkinson, even though the FA are still awaiting official clearance from FIFA that he is eligible to play for England, plus Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone.
