England legend Shearer: Man Utd's Jones should've been played

England legend Alan Shearer feels Manchester United utility Phil Jones could've made the difference against Italy.

Shearer wrote in The Sun: "I don't lay all the blame at Roy Hodgson's door - he had such little time in the job.

"But he should have changed things against Italy to stop Andrea Pirlo running the show.

"Perhaps we needed to get Phil Jones on to do that job.

"But we needed to change something when it was clear we were being overrun in midfield.

"So, once again, we are trying to work out what the others do right and we do wrong. What model should we follow now?"
