Phil Jagielka is happy to see John Heitinga making further progress in the World Cup as his Dutch side beat Brazil yesterday to reach the semi-finals, where they will play Uruguay.
Many feel Jagielka should have been part of the England squad in South Africa, but others point out that not being part of a national disgrace will be a lucky escape for his confidence.
“It is good to see Johnny still flying the flag for Everton,” he said.
“Holland normally seem to do something wrong in World Cups but they have some fantastic individuals and they are playing well as a team.
“It’s hard to pick a winner from the countries remaining but they all have a chance of picking up the trophy.”
