Jagielka out of England squad

BY foxsports • November 13, 2011

But the FA have been anxious to point out the defender did not suffer any further injury during Saturday's 1-0 win over Spain at Wembley. Instead, Everton had already been informed Jagielka would return to the club once Saturday's game was over, providing there was no urgent need for him to stay. It means the 29-year-old can rest the toe injury that has been plaguing him for some time ahead of his side's Premier League encounter with Wolves at Goodison Park on Saturday. As Gabriel Agbonlahor left the squad after suffering a hamstring injury in training on Thursday, it means the remaining 23 players in Fabio Capello's squad are all expected to train at Arsenal's London Colney complex in the morning ahead of Tuesday's friendly with fellow Euro 2012 qualifiers Sweden. Capello has already confirmed Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge will make his debut, with recalls for Bobby Zamora and Gary Cahill. More notably, John Terry will assume the captain's armband for the first time since allegations that he racially abused QPR's Anton Ferdinand - which he strenuously denies - were aired last month.
