Monday’s national newspapers look ahead to England’s clash against Germany at Wembley tomorrow night and the possible return to Goodison Park of a former fans’ favourite.
The Times, The Independent, The Daily Express and The Daily Mirror anticipate the return of Phil Jagielka to England’s starting line-up tomorrow, with manager Roy Hodgson looking to reintroduce some experience back into his side.
Ashley Cole is expected to start ahead of Leighton Baines, while the Daily Telegraph writes that Ross Barkley will fight it out with Adam Lallana for a starting berth.
The Daily Star has linked former Everton forward Tim Cahill with a temporary return to the Premier League in a bid to be ready for next year’s World Cup. The Australian’s season with New York Red Bulls in the MLS is now finished, and the 33-year-old is being linked with a loan move to Everton, Sunderland, Fulham and QPR.
Locally, the Liverpool Echo takes quotes from Roy Hodgson who has said that Leighton Baines is ’50-50’ to be first choice at next year’s World Cup in Brazil.
Also in the Echo, Everton legend Graeme Sharp recalls a breathtaking 4-4 draw in the Merseyside derby at Goodison in 1991.
