Everton trio make Hodgson's England squad

Everton defenders Leighton Baines, Phil Jagielka and John Stones have all been included in the latest England squad.

Roy Hodgson has selected a 22-man-squad to face Norway in a friendly followed by the opening Euro 2016 qualifier against Switzerland on September 8th.

Both Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka were included in England's World Cup squad in Brazil and are now considered England regulars.

But John Stones was only selected on stand-by for Brazil and was eventually left behind.

This time around Stones is hoping to make a bigger impression with England and is aiming for his first international start.

"It`s unbelievable to see my name again with the England senior squad. It`s another dream come true," Stones told evertonfc.com.

He continued: "I came back in from training [on Thursday] and some of the lads were saying 'congratulations`, so I knew before I had even checked my phone. I`ve had a lot of calls from friends and family wishing me good luck.

"As I said at the end of last season, it was such a big shock to get the call off Roy Hodgson and this time I am going to try to build from that experience.

"I`ve got to keep working hard and hopefully it will happen, getting that first start. That will be my biggest aim this time around.
