Svard, who is one of the best up-and-coming youngsters at Highbury, was signed hurriedly by Arsene Wenger after a trial at the club - to stave off interest from Manchester United and Tottenham.
The youngster's inclusion comes at the expense of Igor Stepanovs, who is reported to be ineligible for the competition.
Edu, who will be investigated by the police because of his dual-nationality passport - but is expected to be okay - also joins The Gunners` Euro squad.
Manchester United have taken the opportunity to bring hot prospect Luke Chadwick (pictured) into the squad after a string of good performances alongside the likes of David Beckham, Roy Keane and Ryan Giggs.
The English Champions have also called young Scot Darren Fletcher up to give the midfielder some experience in Uefa's flagship tournament.
Leeds United's record signing and world's most expensive defender Rio Ferdinand is the Yorkshire side's only call-up to their young squad.
