Baines to play key role for England

Baines to play key role for England

With the international break once again upon us domestic football goes on a short break while international football takes over.

Evertonians interest of course will concentrate on our players representing their countries, we all hope they go away and stay in form, or play themselves into form so that Everton get the benefit once they return.

We also like to keep an eye on the England squad, especially when it involved Everton players and in recent times that is often the case with Everton players now an integral part not only of the squad, but the starting line-up.

Phil Jagielka, Ross Barkley and Leighton Baines could all start for Roy Hodgson's England against Montenegro and Poland over the next week.

Jags has impressed for England in defence, whilst Barkley's club form surely has to be recognised by England?

Then there's the left-back role which Baines always competes with Chelsea's Ashley Cole for. But with the Chelsea man pulling out, the path looks clear for Baines to star.

Arsenal's Kieran Gibbs has been called up as cover, but Baines will be expected to earn his 19th and 20th caps during this international break.
