England and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard was impressed by Leon Osman and Steven Caulker’s England debuts.

The Spurs defender became the first England player to crown his first appearance with a goal for five and a half years.

He said: “Raheem [Sterling] is a top player and top players link well. Certainly it is a relationship that will grow moving forward.

“There were other big plus points. Leon Osman, I thought he was really comfortable in possession.

“Steven Caulker did well, he also got a goal on his debut, so there are a lot of positives to take.

“With the squad we brought out, I thought we gave Sweden a really tough game.”
