Jagielka and C. Cole Gets Chance from Capello

England coach Fabio Capello rewarding in-form players in Everton's Phil Jagielka and West Ham's Carltone Cole with a chance to impress, while the on-loan AC Milan midfielder David Beckham could equal Bobby Moore's 108 cap record if selected against the Euro 2008 champions. Capello has opted not to include Wayne Rooney, who has been out with a hamstring injury since January, although he is expected to return to action for Manchester United at Upton Park tomorrow. A similar ailment has also ensured the absence of the Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard from the squad.
