Sven lauds England's striking talent as Owen, Smith, Rooney and Defoe all scored this week.
Sven surprised many when he plumped for a three-pronged strike-force against Wales and Azerbaijan, but reveals that players of the calibre of Defoe, Owen and Rooney just couldn't be left out.
In an exclusive interview with TheFA.com for England TV, Sven lauded the wealth of talent at his disposal in the attacking third, but said the 4-3-3 would only be used when right for England.
"When you have three strikers like Defoe, Owen and Rooney it’s difficult to put one of them out," he explained. "A goal can come from any one of them.
"Then we have Alan Smith as well who is doing very very well
"It’s good that we have a lot of strikers but to always play three – I don’t think so. It depends where we’re playing, against who we are playing, the shape, are they in good form those three strikers, so we will see.
"Now we have a friendly in November and probably we’re going to try different things as well."
Should England revert to a 4-4-2 formation, the name of Shaun Wright-Phillips will no doubt enter Sven's mind once more. The winger who knows no fear tucked away two sumptuous goals against Newcastle on the weekend and could be set to take on England team-mate Ashley Cole in the Carling tonight.
Sven is not only impressed with the City man's skill, but also his physical tenacity.
"He’s a very interesting player because he’s tough," stated the England manager. "He’s not tall but he’s very very tough.
"He has pace of course, and he can cross the ball too. He did not have too much time when he came on for us against Azerbaijan but he showed again how he can beat people."
Sven will name his squad to face Spain here on TheFA.com on the evening of Saturday November 13.
