Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard says that teammate Leon Osman deserves his England cap more than previous Three Lions internationals.

Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard has claimed that he will keep his "fingers crossed" that teammate Leon Osman gets his first England cap this evening.

The 31-year-old is expected to make his Three Lions debut tonight in a friendly against Sweden in Stockholm, and Howard has admitted that he was "delighted" for his teammate.

"Fingers crossed he gets an England cap because there have been a heck of a lot less deserving guys down the years to get caps," Howard told the club's official website.

"He's just so fantastic and he's been a rock for this club. I was delighted for him; so, so happy."

Meanwhile, Liverpool youngster Raheem Sterling and Tottenham Hotspur's Steven Caulker are also expected to receive his first senior England cap.
