England's Jagielka: We don't know a lot about Neymar

England and Everton defender Phil Jagielka has admitted that they do not know much about Seleção star Neymar.

Neymar is leading the Seleção into the friendly clash with England at Wembley on Wednesday to celebrate the FA's 150th anniversary.

But Jagielka revealed they are studying videos of the Santos sensation: "I don't know a lot about Neymar. We don't see a lot of footage. He plays in Brazil so it is tough for us.

"But we have video analysis people when we meet up with England and they will have plenty of footage for us to review.

"They will pick out his good points and bad ones. I am sure the good points will be going on for hours."

The defender admitted that he may not get his chance at the friendly: "We have four or five really good centre-backs who are competing for both positions.

"It is not even like one is nailed down and the other is available. I guess that is what the manager enjoys.

"He has got a bit of everything; youth, experience, people who are playing in the Champions League.

"It is down to us to try and put your authority down and get that place."
