Report: Everton trio all set to start for England against Netherlands

Everton Goodison 2

The Toffees' stars John Stones, Phil Jagielka, and Ross Barkley are reportedly all in line to feature from the off for Roy Hodgson's side on Tuesday.

Everton are likely to have several representatives in Roy Hodgson's England side for Tuesday night's international friendly with the Netherlands, with key trio Phil Jagielka, John Stones, and Ross Barkley all set to start the match according to the Liverpool Echo.

Barkley was the only Toffees man to play any part in the Three Lions' dramatic 3-2 victory over Germany in Berlin on Saturday, with the midfielder replacing Adam Lallana for the final 19 minutes.

The 22-year-old played a role in the build-up to fellow substitute Jamie Vardy's superb equaliser just three minutes after the pair had come on, and he is now likely to be handed a chance to impress in a starting berth at Wembley.

The midfielder has been a key performer at club level this season, scoring 12 goals in 38 matches and generally serving as one of the biggest bright spots of an otherwise uninspiring season for Roberto Martinez.

Toffees skipper Phi Jagielka was named in the England squad despite Everton's relatively poor defensive record this season and, according to the Echo, is also expected to start against the Netherlands.

The experienced centre-back is likely to be joined in the heart of defence by his teammate John Stones, despite the youngster having started just a single Premier League match since January, the eventual 3-2 defeat to West Ham United in which he was pulled off at half-time.

The report comes after Martinez said after the home defeat to Arsenal last weekend that the international break was serving as a distraction to his players and was something which Everton could do without.

The Spanish manager will be hoping that the trio come through the match unscathed as the Toffees look ahead to an FA Cup semi-final against either West Ham or Manchester United next month.
