Everton's Rodwell can handle Wembley pressure

Jack Rodwell insists he can handle the pressure of Everton's FA Cup final clash with Chelsea next week.

The teenage midfielder says: "It is nice to hear that my manager has confidence in me but there are some good players in my position so if I have to wait my turn then so be it.

"But if I get my chance (at Wembley) then I will take it, fine. The squad is strong at the moment so there is a lot of competition for places. That is healthy and we will see what happens."
