Moyes: Jags is England class

The 28-year-old stopper has only won six caps for his country, but

he starred in the Three Lions’ 4-0 Euro 2012 qualifying win over

Bulgaria last month. Experienced duo John Terry and Rio Ferdinand

are expected to pair up for England’s crucial upcoming qualifier

against Montenegro, although Moyes believes Jagielka would do a

job. The Toffees boss has been delighted with Jagielka’s transition

to the international stage and feels he could play alongside Terry,

or anyone else for that matter, with distinction against

Montenegro. “I think Jagielka has given a fresh impetus to

England,” said Moyes. “I think Rio Ferdinand is a top player, as is

John Terry, and England have a strong base at centre-half. But I do

think Jags has come in and done well. “It’s like a team manager

when he leaves out one of his better players and puts in someone

who does well. “That leaves you with the dilemma of whether to give

the boy a chance or go back to the player who was left out. “From

my point of view, Jags got better in the England games. His

confidence grew and he gives England something different at the

back. “He is quick around the ball and would play well with John

Terry or whoever he is paired alongside.”
