Everton defender Jagielka fires warning at Ferdinand, Terry

Everton defender Phil Jagielka won't be giving up his England shirt without a fight.

Jagielka last night warned Rio Ferdinand and John Terry they face a battle to claim their place back from him.

"It's always hard to displace players like JT and Rio, but I would like to think I can make it tough for them to get back in," he said. "If Rio and JT come back fit for the next squad and they are in form and they get picked, they are not bad players to be behind.

"But I'd like to put real pressure on them, that's what it's all about and I'm sure the manager wants that as well.

"He's always said he wants to pick form players, so if I can keep playing international football and keep keeping clean sheets then, hopefully, it cranks up the pressure a bit."
