Leon Osman is happy to escape the Dad's Army brigade at Everton this week.
Osman normally spends international week trying to cheer up Evertonâ€™s version of the grumpy old men.
"Thereâ€™s usually four or five of us left behind," said Osman. "Thereâ€™s me, Phil Neville, Sylvain Distin, Tony Hibbert and Steven Pienaar, now heâ€™s retired from international football.
"Thereâ€™s not much you can do. Itâ€™s usually running. Iâ€™m a lot happier to be here, I can tell you. Iâ€™m sure theyâ€™ll miss me. Iâ€™m the lively one."
