Leighton Baines is set to again start for England on Tuesday after Ashley Cole was ruled out of the Three Lions' game against Ukraine.

Meanwhile, there could be a place in Roy Hodgson's side for Phil Jagielka after John Terry was withdrawn from the squad due to an ankle injury sustained during Friday's 5-0 demolition of Moldova.

Cole's absence in Chisinau led to a first competitive international start for Baines and the Kirkby-born star marked the occasion with a maiden England goal.

The former Wigan defender beat goalkeeper Stanislav Namasco with the aid of a mighty deflection as Hodgson's men got their 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign up and running in clinical fashion.

Having missed that clash, Cole (ankle) was assessed again on Saturday and medical staff took the decision the Chelsea left-back would not be fit for the Wembley visit of the Euro 2012 co-hosts.

Initial thoughts were that his club teammate Terry could recover in time but the FA confirmed on Sunday the 31-year-old former captain had withdrawn from the squad. 

Jagielka or Terry's Chelsea teammate Gary Cahill are expected to instead partner Manchester City's Joleon Lescott in the centre of defence.
