Warnock expects Everton defender Jagielka to be England ever-present

Everton defender Phil Jagielka is determined to be an England first-choice.

And the 28-year-old has been backed to achieve his aim by Neil Warnock, the man who developed him as a young professional at Sheffield United.

"I think it will be who plays with Jagielka in the years to come," declared the current QPR manager. "I thought he should have gone to the World Cup. I still don't understand why he didn't go. He'll only get better - he'll be a regular.

"We worked on his strength in that department," Warnock added when asked about Jagielka's pace. "His recovery is his best part. If you watch his timing he anticipates it. He very rarely gets done for pace because of his anticipation.

"I never used to think Bobby Moore was quick but he never got himself in a situation where he got exposed."
