Carra: Jagielka and co can cover

Jamie Carragher believes England have plenty of quality defenders and says Everton centre-back Phil Jagielka is a "great player".

Liverpool defender Carragher came out of retirement to go to the World Cup but the veteran has ruled out another England return, largely because he believes Fabio Capello has plenty of other players capable of filling in for first-choice pair Rio Ferdinand and John Terry.

When asked if he would consider playing for the Three Lions again, Carragher told talkSPORT: "No. England will be all right.

"I think Jagielka is a great player, Michael Dawson has done great for Tottenham and Matthew Upson is back in the squad now.

"England knew the situation at the start. It was a one-off thing for me going back. They were in a bit of trouble and so they asked me.

"I liked the idea of working with Capello and to have another chance of playing in a World Cup. I honestly thought England had a chance of winning it - can you believe that!"
