Jagielka may be the right man to counter Vucinic


Fabio Capello is minded to start Phil Jagielka at right-back against Montenegro in Podgorica on Friday to counter the threat of Mirko Vucinic.

The 28-year-old Vucinic, who plays for Juventus, has been identified by Capello as the main threat to England in their final Euro 2012 qualifier. Despite the absence of the injured Glen Johnson and Chris Smalling, Capello is well-covered at right-back with Kyle Walker, Micah Richards and Phil Jones all able to play there as well as Jagielka.

The team will work on their shape in training today and are due to fly to Montenegro tomorrow.
