Liverpool veteran Carragher heaps praise on Everton defender Jagielka

Liverpool veteran Jamie Carragher is happy to see Everton's Phil Jagielka in the England squad.

Carragher ended his international retirement for this year's World Cup.

Asked whether Fabio Capello had been in contact again, the Liverpool defender said: "No. England will be all right.

"I think [Phil] Jagielka is a great player, [Michael] Dawson has done great for Tottenham and [Matthew] Upson is back in the squad now. England knew the situation at the start. It was a one-off thing for me going back. They were in a bit of trouble and so they asked me. I liked the idea of working with Capello and to have another chance of playing in a World Cup. I honestly thought England had a chance of winning it - can you believe that!"
