Leon Osman is happy to escape the Dad's Army brigade at Everton this week.

Osman normally spends international week trying to cheer up Everton’s version of the grumpy old men.

"There’s usually four or five of us left behind," said Osman. "There’s me, Phil Neville, Sylvain Distin, Tony Hibbert and Steven Pienaar, now he’s retired from international football.

"There’s not much you can do. It’s usually running. I’m a lot happier to be here, I can tell you. I’m sure they’ll miss me. I’m the lively one."
