Steven Gerrard to undergo scan ahead of Sweden clash

Goal :    Steven Gerrard will undergo scans on a knee injury ahead of England’s friendly against Sweden on Wednesday, the Football Association has confirmed.

Roy Hodgson’s squad has already been hit by a swathe of casualties from the weekend’s action, with Wayne Rooney, Aaron Lennon, Theo Walcott, Jonjo Shelvey and Kyle Walker all pulling out.

Gerrard was thought be the latest to join them after picking up an injury against Chelsea at the weekend in the second half of the 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge, but his club manager Brendan Rodgers believes he will be fine for the trip.
