Everton keeper Howard: Jagielka deserves his England fame

Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard is delighted to see Phil Jagielka being the talk of the world press.

Howard believes team-mate Jagielka is finally getting the credit he deserves.

The Blues defender will return to club duty tomorrow after shining in England's Euro 2012 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Switzerland.

"I've said for a long time that if I had to pick an XI then without question Jags would be the first name on the list," he said.

"He brings so much to the team and is such a selfless person. He always seems to put in a very positive, strong performance.

"Whether the team is playing great or not, he always delivers. As a goalkeeper to have that is great and we have a good understanding having played together for quite a while now.

"I'm delighted for him because I think he's getting his just rewards."
