Baines just took himself out of England consideration

What an unforgivable mistake by Leighton Baines against Fulham.
Showing absolutely no awareness, Baines back passes to Tim Howard, and Erik Nevland, lurking in the background pounces on the ball and chips it over the Everton goalie. The left wingback continues to show questionable defensive qualities while showcasing more impressive attacking credentials.
Fabio Capello is still holding out on Wayne Bridge reconsidering his international retirement. His experience in that position looks even more attractive with these sort of immature mistakes.
Six months after qualifying for South Africa, the England squad looks just as unsettled with question marks in almost every position. Capello is left with huge decisions before releasing his 30 man roster to FIFA two weeks from now.
