Carl Jenkinson took part in his first senior England training session on Sunday.

The Arsenal defender has been tipped for a call-up to Roy Hodgson's squad - perhaps for next month's friendly against Sweden in Gothenburg - and he was given a taste of what to expect at London Colney.

Jenkinson was drafted into the England squad for the day but will not travel to Warsaw for Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against Poland.

Speaking ahead of the international break, Hodgson said: "On this occasion, we decided to... keep Jenkinson up our sleeves, but he'll be very much in our thoughts when it comes to the next friendly match.

"After speaking to Arsène [Wenger] I am also conscious that his rise has been meteoric. He's only 20 and it's nice to temper things a little bit, but he wouldn't be out of place in the squad."
