Jagielka in fitness fight

Afp
Thursday, May 29, 2014

LONDON - England defender Phil Jagielka says he is on course to win his fight to be fit for the World Cup.

Jagielka struggled to recover from a hamstring injury suffered in February, raising doubts about the Everton centre-back's ability to get back to full fitness in time for the tournament in Brazil.

The 31-year-old, who is expected to partner Gary Cahill at the heart of England's defence, was sidelined for two months towards the end of the Premier League campaign, but returned for the final two matches and is now nearing full fitness.

"We had a really good session today and it is about getting myself ready," Jagielka said yesterday.

"I do not need to be 100 per cent fit this week, it is more about building up and getting match practice before we go out to Miami for the friendly matches.

"Hopefully I will time it perfectly for the opening group game."
