Rooney & Walcott among five England withdrawals
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney and Arsenal forward Theo Walcott are among five players who have withdrawn from England's forthcoming friendly against Sweden.
Jonjo Shelvey, Kyle Walker and Aaron Lennon have also been forced to withdraw from Wednesday's match due to a variety of injury complaints, restricting manager Roy Hodgson's options somewhat.
The FA confirmed that Hodgson also tried to add Jermain Defoe and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to his squad for the game - but he was informed by their respective clubs that neither player was fit enough to travel.
