Everton's Jagielka in surprise Euro call-up

Phil Jagielka has been called into Everton's squad for their Europa League clash at Sporting Lisbon. Jagielka has not played a first-team game for nearly 12 months, after he ruptured his cruciate ligament in April last year.

The England defender was due to make his competitive return in a reserve team clash with Bolton on Tuesday - but the match was postponed.

Despite a lack of action the 27 year old has been included in David Moyes' 22-man squad - which also includes Swiss stopper Philippe Senderos, who has been sidelined with a back injury.
