Everton manager Roberto Martinez has confirmed that Phil Jagielka will miss this weekend's game with West Ham.
Jagielka has been suffering from a hamstring problem in training this week which will rule him out of Saturday's meeting with Sam Allardyce's side at Goodison Park and also means that the 31-year-old will be sidelined for England's meeting with Denmark next week.
But Martinez has assured both the Three Lions boss and Evertonians that Jagielka's injury will not have long-term implications for the defender.
"Phil has felt his hamstring over the last couple of days," he told his pre-match press conference.
"I don't think it will be a long-term problem, but he'll miss the weekend and won't play for England."
