Jack Wilshere and Leon Osman Named in England Squad to Face Sweden: The Daily EPL

england Jack Wilshere and Leon Osman Named in England Squad to Face Sweden: The Daily EPL

England has named their 23-man squad for their upcoming friendly against Sweden. Everton’s midfielder Leon Osman has got called up for the first time, while Jack Wilshere — fresh from his injury — is also named, in addition to Liverpool’s Jonjo Shelvey and Raheem Sterling.

Before we get to the Premier League news headlines of the day, I want to commend how brilliant the Glasgow Celtic supporters were yesterday during their match against Barcelona. They really put the club supporters in England to shame. There wasn’t the carbon-copy songs that the Premier League supporters sing. Nor were there 20,000-65,000 fans sitting on the bums during the entire match. Congratulations to Celtic on the win. But congratulations to their supporters for putting on a wonderful display that is sadly lacking in England.

Here are the Premier League news headlines today:

    About 5-6 years overdue for Osman, great to see him finally get there though.

    Roy “Hodgepodge” Hodgson continues his unbeaten streak of deflating me over my countries national football team….ugghhh.. this England debacle continues.

    just one example is this Wilshire inclusion, he has done nothing since returning to Farcenal’s first team except go down clutching his ankle on most challenges and then get a red card and all this without playing 90 mins of premier league football.

    Friendly or not, all We heard before euros was Roy hasn’t had enough time, the England manager never gets enough time to gel a squad, and yet his selections continue to look like he is not capable of forming a cohesive starting 11 with 6 key subs for tactical plan B’s or injury for Brazil, His selections certainly aren’t anticipating new young talent, and it continues to feel completely directionless.

    In-spite of me wanting to go to Brazil in 2014 and see England, I don’t think we will qualify.

    Hodgepodge selections and a hodgepodge of tactics and coaching staff are just too much to bare for me as an Englishman.

    I’m sure everyone will disagree…

  3. It’s about time Leon Osman got his chance, and of course, Jack Wilshere’s call up is a no brainer. I just hope it isn’t too soon for him.

    Carl Jenkinson being left out is a puzzler though!

      he is being added but as he has played for finland there is paperwork that needs to be completed and approved before he can make a squad sheet

    It’s a shame that Gary Hooper is injured and couldn’t get called up.

      Dust, hope you don’t mind, but I changed the URL in your comment to the original source of the article, which was ESPN FC. Premiership Talk stole the quotes and didn’t attribute the source of the article to ESPN.

      Cheers,

      Cesc joined the club in 2004 after we won the league going unbeaten and that team had thierry henry, viera in addition to some african players and french manager so makes sense.
      I have no problem with that whatsoever – im guessing now more english is spoken especially with the number of english players in the squad. If you gave arsenal fans a choice between great players/great team of 2004 versus todays team the only people that would pick todays team is prob. stan knonke and gazidis.

    Agreed, Celtic fans were fantastic throughout the game. This famous win brought tears to one of their most famous fans, Rod Stewart.

    Well if sectarian chanting and banners is your thing then Celtic are the team for you ;-)
