Everton defender Phil Jagielka has been promoted to England’s Euros squad following the withdrawal of Gareth Barry.

The Manchester City midfielder was ruled out of Roy Hodgon’s roster for next month’s tournament after he was injured in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Norway and Jagielka will step in as replacement.

Jagielka played 90 minutes at centre-back in Hodgson’s first game as Three Lions boss and his performance has won him a spot in the final 23-man squad where he will join Toffees teammate Leighton Baines.
