Jagielka: We need to build on draw

12 September 2012 20:36

England's Phil Jagielka believes the team can build on their 1-1 draw with Ukraine and will still automatically qualify for the World Cup 2014.

The visitors nearly pulled off a shock win but England came away with a point when a late Frank Lampard penalty snatched a draw.

The Everton defender, who replaced the sidelined John Terry in the starting line-up, admitted the performance was not the best from Roy Hodgson's side, but said the team has plenty of room for improvement.

"We'd have loved to have had the full six points (from the first two games) but four points will do," Jagielka said.

"As long as we continue building on it, we'll be fine. (It was) definitely one point gained.

"We look forward to the next game now and if we can make that seven then it's a progression and hopefully we'll finish top of the group.

"But if you look at the chances we created, two or three pretty clear-cut ones in the first half and a couple more in the second - hitting the post and stuff - as much as the performance wasn't amazing, we still showed glimpses of being able to create the chances.

"If we'd taken them, especially earlier on, we'd have been in control of the game."

England had a Jermain Defoe goal disallowed as referee Cuneyt Cakir frequently blew his whistle against the home side to frustrate the Wembley faithful, and Jagielka admitted to being frustrated by the official's performance.

"We're winning the ball and the ref's either booking us or giving free kicks," Jagielka said. "So, a little bit frustrating but there's not much we can do about that.

"Thankfully, we managed to keep plugging away and get the penalty. Frank was calm as you like, finished it off, and a draw's not a bad result at the end."
