Villa Trio Hope To Face Sweden For England U21s

Villa Trio Hope To Face Sweden For England U21s

England U21's, who won their group after a 1-1 draw against Germany (with the equaliser coming from a corner taken by Craig Gardner who was captain on the night) will face the tournament hosts Sweden on Friday 26 June.

England v Sweden
UEFA European U21 Championship
Semi-Final
5pm, Friday 26 June 2009
Gothenburg, Sweden

Gabby Agbonlahor is in a race to be fit after picking up a calf injury in the game v Spain. He has done some light training but Stuart Pearce will take no risks. The England U21 boss said: 'He has got to put a couple of days training in as if he doesn't then Fraizer Campbell or Theo Walcott are ready to take his place. Everyone is champing at the bit for a starting place in the semis so Gabby knows if he isn't on the training pitch he won't start the game.'

I assume James Milner will be available after missing the Germany game due to a suspension.
