Phil Jagielka is confident that England can learn from the defeats against Chile and Germany at Wembley strengthen their hand ahead of the World Cup next summer.

Phil Jagielka (right): England defender admits there are lessons to learn

Jagielka feels England can still benefit from the two Wembley losses - particularly if they can learn to adapt to playing counter-attacking teams.

"I only got to play in the second game, but watching the first game, you can see how good a team Chile are," said Jagielka.

"They are a South American team, they have a certain way of playing and you hope to pick up a few bits and bobs which potentially you might come across in Brazil.

"Against Germany, it was difficult to learn too much because they made a lot of changes to their starting XI and we made a lot during the game.

"But on the counter-attack, we have come up against a very special team making some fantastic runs and that is something we will have to take a look into.

"We are still a work in progress and it is all about progression.

"We have some more friendlies coming up before the World Cup, and we know what we need to do to improve."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
