It is not quite pensioners and schoolboys, but Roy Hodgson will be creating some kind of landmark when he tosses Leon Osman and Raheem Sterling into the England fray in Stockholm.

Osman, at 31 years and 181 days and Sterling, at just 17 years and 342 will create the biggest age gap between Three Lions debutants since World War II. With Tottenham's Steven Caulker included as well suddenly a late autumn trip to Sweden is not quite the pointless exercise some Barclays Premier League managers would have us believe.

"Steven Caulker and Raheem have been playing regularly for the Under-21s and have made that transition," said Hodgson.
