Jags looking ahead
Everton defender Phil Jagielka is hoping England boss Roy Hodgson will provide the side with 'the missing ingredient' this summer.
Jags is on his way to Poland and the Ukraine because of the injury suffered by Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry and he is looking ahead to his first major international tournament.
Jagielka is hoping that the arrival of the new boss Hodgson will give England the extra spark they need to cause a shock this summer.
Jagielka said: "I'm sure if we win a game, we will be favourites and, if we lose, we will be regarded as a waste of space.
"It would be better for the squad if there was a little bit less expectation on us.
"Hopefully we can go under the radar until the latter stages of the tournament and get further than we have done before.
"If we are being realistic, we haven't won anything for a number of years now and maybe that is because we don't deserve to.
"Hopefully this time around we can perform a little bit better and see where it takes us."
