Everton defender Jagielka delighted for Rodwell over England call

Everton defender Phil Jagielka is delighted for teammate Jack Rodwell over his England call-up.

He felt that was in part due to the transfer deadline day sale of Mikel Arteta to Arsenal in August, which provided an opening for the youngster to earn a regular place.

"We have said with Mikel leaving and us being short of numbers in the middle it was time for Jack to step up and he has been fantastic since he has done so," Jagielka told evertontv.

"He was unfortunate with the red card against Liverpool but other than that he has been up there with our players of the season so far."
