Phil Jagielka will finally get to go to a major tournament after he was called into England's Euro 2012 squad as replacement for Gareth Barry.
Manager Roy Hodgson had indicated he would "re-configure" his 23-man squad if Barry was ruled out by the stomach problem he suffered during Saturday's friendly win in Norway.
And after scans confirmed Barry could not play any meaningful role in Poland and Ukraine this summer, Hodgson did just that, adding Jagielka as an eighth defender in preference to Liverpool's Jordan Henderson, who had been on standby in midfield.
