Phil Jagielka is confident his performances against Republic of Ireland and Brazil will put him in the picture for further starting berths when England resume their World Cup qualifying campaign later in the year.

Prior to the recent international double-header, the Everton skipper had not featured in the Three Lions’ previous four fixtures.

But following two steady displays alongside Gary Cahill, Jagielka is hopeful he can continue his partnership with the Chelsea man when England are next in action after the summer break.

Roy Hodgson’s side entertain Scotland in a friendly at Wembley in mid-August before facing Moldova and Ukraine at the start of September – qualifiers that could go a long way to deciding whether England will be returning to Brazil next summer.

"Getting to play two lots of 90 minutes definitely helped," Jagielka said following England’s 2-2 draw in Rio de Janeiro.

"I came here to play as many minutes as I could and thankfully I got two games and so did Gaz [Cahill].

"It's always nice to try and strike up a partnership. We have not played that many games together.

"The two tests we have had have been completely different but they have been two great tests and hopefully we will go back now, start next season well and hopefully put up a good shout for next season."
