Wilfried Zaha is handed a role as a striker for the England Under-21 side against Sweden.

Manchester United's Wilfried Zaha will feature as a central striker for England's Under-21 side against their Swedish counterparts this evening.

The 20-year-old, who is currently on loan with Crystal Palace, will be supported by Thomas Ince and Benik Afobe, who have been given wide attacking roles by manager Stuart Pearce.

"I want to see Wilf play down the middle. He played a lot of youth football in that position," Pearce told ESPN a short while ago.

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson will captain the team.

England: Steele; Smith, Wisdom, Dawson, Robinson; McEachran, Henderson, Ince, Shelvey, Afobe; Zaha
