The club are delighted to announce that Wilfried Zaha has been called into the full England squad for Wednesday's match against Sweden.

The 20 year old forward, who celebrated his birthday on Saturday, has been in fantastic form this season, scoring four times in 17 appearances as Palace recovered from a slow start to move top of the Championship.

Academy manager Gary Issott said: "Everyone at the club is delighted by the news. Wilfried's having a fantastic season and is becoming the player we all knew he would. He is a wonderful talent and this recognition makes us hugely proud of him and the work we do producing young players at this club. His call up shows the benefits of starting your career at a club that is committed to giving young players a chance in the first team."
