Baines makes a case for the defence

Leighton Baines England and EvertonEverton defender Leighton Baines has said that England have been unlucky to have been punished for the few chances they have given Italy and Uruguay in the World Cup in Brazil.

Baines has been among those targeted by the national media since the defeat to Uruguay put England back on the plane, but says that this year’s tournament has set the tone that the England games have followed.

“I don’t think we have given up too many chances in the two games, but when we have, we have been punished,” said Baines.

“The tournament has been a bit like that. There have been a lot of goals so far and we’ll have to look at it in the next couple of days.”
