Everton star Baines: Unthinkable England not reaching World Cup

Everton star Leighton Baines refuses to contemplate England missing the World Cup.

He conceded failing to qualify for Rio 2014 would be almost unthinkable.

"It is hard to imagine a major tournament without England there, isn't it?" he said.

"Every now and again one of the major nations you expect to be there isn't there.

"We all know and feel that disappointment when it doesn't happen and with that in mind, we all understand what is on the line."
