England captain Steven Gerrard will be fit to win his 100th cap for the Three Lions in Wednesday’s friendly with Sweden in Stockholm.

The Liverpool midfielder had been struggling with a knee injury sustained during Sunday’s 1-1 Premier League draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.


However, according to the BBC, a precautionary scan revealed no lasting damage and the 32-year-old has been cleared to travel to the Swedish capital with the rest of Roy Hodgson’s squad.


If selected, Gerrard would become the sixth player to reach the century mark of appearances for England, the last of which was David Beckham in March 2008, which came under Fabio Capello in a 1-0 defeat against France.


Gerrard made his debut against Ukraine in a pre-Euro 2000 friendly at Wembley under Kevin Keegan with goals from Tony Adams and Robbie Fowler giving the home side a 2-0 victory.


News of Gerrard’s fitness will provide a fillip to Hodgson and his staff, who have seen the likes of Theo Walcott and Wayne Rooney pull out through injury already.
