Hodgson sure of Jenkinson green light

Roy Hodgson is confident of being granted FIFA clearance that will allow him to name Arsenal's Carl Jenkinson in his England squad for next week's game against Sweden.

Jenkinson, 20, was not among the players included in Hodgson's 23-man squad for the friendly fixture in Stockholm next Wednesday.

But Hodgson has revealed he is waiting on the relevant paperwork, as he has appeared for Finland at Under-21 level, before including the right-back.

The Three Lions boss told FATV: "The reason I didn't include Carl from the start is because we haven't, at this moment in time, got clearance from FIFA but we do believe that they are going to grant that clearance within a day or two.

"So by next Wednesday, he will be clear to play. He wants to play for England and has made that clear so we applied for permission to FIFA, as one is allowed to do, immediately after he left us and before we set off for Poland.

"That was a month ago, but I didn't want to put his name down in a squad until such time as I've got FIFA clearance saying he's available to play for us in my hand.

"If the clearance comes through, we will put him in the squad. He was with us for training just before we left for Poland and I made it clear to him then that if he did want to play for England, I would include him in this squad and I intend to keep that promise."

Jenkinson signed for Arsenal from Charlton for £1 million in 2011 and has since made 17 Premier League appearances for the Gunners.
