Phil Jagielka England and EvertonEverton captain Phil Jagielka got a taste of what it would be like to captain his country last night in the USA as he took the armband for the last 20 minutes of the game.

After Steven Gerrard and Joe Hart were replaced by England boss Roy Hodgson, Jags was handed the armband to take charge of his team as they struggled to break down 10-man Honduras in the stormy Miami heat.
