Phil Jagielka says that England need to put in the sort of display against Brazil on Wednesday that helped them beat Spain in 2011.

England defender Phil Jagielka has urged his teammates to pull off the same kind of performance against Brazil as they did against Spain.

The Three Lions upset the World and European Championships in November 2011, when Frank Lampard scored the only goal of the game to give the home side a 1-0 win at Wembley in a friendly.

While the Brazil match is also a friendly, the Everton centre-back is adamant that there is still a lot riding on the fixture.

"This is a high-stakes game," Jagielka told ESPN.

"That Spain game wasn't make or break but because we won and kept a clean sheet it turned into a massive positive.

"It is a similar situation now. Whether I get to play, or someone else, it is about gaining experience from a great test."

England host Brazil at Wembley on Wednesday.
