Baines delighted for Everton pal Jagielka over England success

Everton fullback Leighton Baines was delighted for Phil Jagielka over his England form last week.

Baines was quick to get on the phone to Jags to offer his congratulations.

"Jags has been brilliant for England," said Baines. "I watched him against the Swiss and he looked so comfortable and assured at the back.

"I texted him after the game and said 'you looked like you had played 40 internationals'. He certainly didn't look like it was his sixth cap.

"The way he performed for England is the way he plays for us every week. He is a rock and a terrific defender."
