Phil Jagielka will start tonight, while Barkley has been tipped for great things and is expected to make an impact from the bench for England.
Jagielka, Everton captain and his 20-year-old teammate turned out to compete in the Chang Beer Crossbar Challenge at Everton FC’s Finch Farm training ground shortly before leaving for Brazil 2014.
The challenge involved kicking a ball from the halfway line, hitting the crossbar and causing a plastic beer bottle perched on top to fall to the ground.
So who fared better? The veteran defender with 24 England caps to his name or the fresh-faced midfielder, tipped by some to be the next Wayne Rooney?
