Jagielka – Were confident in ourselves to go and do big things
Everton captain Phil Jagielka believes his team put in a really professional job last night with a 2-0 win away against VFL Wolfsburg and he is confident in his team to do big things.
Jags believes that the team can go far in the competition but stresses that it will be hard but says that they hope to finish off in style at home against Krasnodar.
He said: “We knew it was going to be a tough group from the draw but we’ve done a really professional job from day one. We started with a win and then cemented our place tonight.
“A draw would have seen both teams through anyway but the game wasn’t played that way. Both sides wanted the win. The tactic we used on the counter attack worked really well in the end.
“We’re confident in ourselves to go and do big things. We can go really far in this competition. It will be hard, we’ve qualified well but in the next round a few big boys drop in from the Champions League which, if anything makes the competition even stronger.
“It will be an interesting next few weeks. We still have a game to play and hopefully we can finish off in style at home and look forward to the draw.”
