Fabio Capello insists he would not risk Phil Jagielka if he were less than 100% fit at Wembley on Saturday night.
Capello will pair Jagielka with Joleon Lescott in central defence as England entertain world champions Spain. The move will attract Everton boss David Moyes' interest given Jagielka has been playing recently only thanks to injections in a toe injury.
"Before I decide about a player, I always in my career, speak with the doctors. I always speak with the player and ask whether they can play? If they are 100%? Not 90%, but 100%? Are you ready? He said yes. He will decide whether he takes an injection. But he trained normally, without one," said Capello.
