Clean Sheet For Jags In 4-0 Win

Phil Jagielka starts against Bulgaria on Friday night.

Clean Sheet For Jags In 4-0 Win

Phil Jagielka helped England keep a clean sheet as the Three Lions beat Bulgaria 4-0.

Fabio Capello's side started their Euro 2012 campaign in style at Wembley, where Jermain Defoe was the hat-trick hero.

But there were mixed fortunes around Europe as several other Blues took to the field for their respective nations.

As widely expected, Jagielka lined up in central defence in the absence of John Terry and Rio Ferdinand, and looked tidy and solid throughout.

Defoe lashed England ahead inside three minutes and the home side remained in control, with the same player doubling the lead just after the hour. Adam Johnson struck late on before Defoe made it four with his hat-trick goal.

Also on Friday, Diniyar Bilyaletdinov helped Russia to a routine 2-0 win over Andorra but there was bad news for two other Everton stars.

Fellaini challenges Schweingsteiger

Marouane Fellaini was handed a start for Belgium's Euro 2012 qualifying clash at home to Germany, playing the full 90 minutes in Brussels but losing out to a Miroslav Klose strike.

On his return to international football, Louis Saha was a substitute for France as they began their campaign at home to Belarus, the striker emerging from the bench with 20 minutes to go before going off injured just ten minutes later with a right knee problem. The French went on to concede a late goal in losing 1-0 at home.

On a happier note, Jan Mucha was named in goal for Slovakia's home qualifier with Macedonia and helped keep a clean sheet, ensuring Filip Holosko's injury time goal was enough for victory.

And Tim Cahill was in friendly action, starting Australia's low-key 0-0 draw with Switzerland.

Some of Everton's young stars were also on duty, with Seamus Coleman involved in the Republic of Ireland Under-21s' 1-0 defeat in Switzerland.

Meanwhile, Joao Silva made a late appearance from the bench as Portugal's Under-21 side lost 1-0 to England.

CRAIG WEILDINGBad new re Saha. The downside of our players being on international duty. Hope he is ok to score against United.

Sarah HowardWell Done Lads, Hope U are fit & injury free for the United game. Jags was the best defender on the pitch (Hope Dawson is not out too long, him & Jags are the two best Centre-Backs in the country. Hope Rodders is alright and get well soon Louis Saha (he must get frustrated with his troublesome knee).

james obrienwell done jags. solid as usual. still dont think we have seen the best of him since the bad injury yet but with more games under his belt im sure he will reach them levels again! I think fellaini again like jags just needs games to get his match fitness up to scratch. yes it was a stupid mistake to give the ball away in the villa game like he did and he looked a bit clumsy at times but we all know his class and am sure he will rediscover the form we all know he can produce!! lets not forget we are playing good football and out passing teams... the goals will come im sure! come on you blues!!

Cason TangNow Terry should look out for the No. 6 shirt challenge. Jag is faster than him. Jag is better than Terry in the air. Jag can also attack if needed. Bad news for Saha, now he may need more leeches for his knee. But it may not be too bad for Everton as Yak will now have the chance to show he can still do the job, and I do believe he can be 20+ scorer that he was before injury. Go Blues! Go Yak!!!
