Phil Jagielka believes England boss Roy Hodgson faces a tough decision over whether to stick with Jagielka's Everton team-mate Leighton Baines or bring back Ashley Cole at left-back for Tuesday's World Cup qualifier in Poland.

Jagielka has hailed Baines as the in-form player in the Barclays Premier League this season and he again impressed during Friday's 5-0 win over minnows San Marino at Wembley. Cole was rested for that match because of his ongoing ankle problem and he is only two caps away from reaching 100 senior appearances for his country.

Jagielka said: "It is going to be a really tough decision for the manager. Getting to watch Bainesy from a closer view than most, he has had a fantastic start to the season at club level and international level. It is not a bad headache for the manager to have."
