Baines: I’m playing second fiddle

Baines is a strong contender to be part of Fabio Capello’s squad

which travels to Poland and Ukraine, but competition to start is

fierce. The former Wigan defender has a mammoth task in displacing

Ashley Cole in the Italian’s line-up as he has just six caps to his

name compared to the Chelsea man’s 93. Baines has been happy with

his recent form, however, he knows dislodging Cole in England’s

starting XI is easier said than done. “I’m not sure I’ll go into

the Euros as first choice,” said Baines. “My form was good last

season and the season before but Ashley Cole is still the number

one left-back. All I know is that it will be hard to dislodge him.”
