Everton defender Leighton Baines hopes his selection for England's Euro 2012 squad will have dispelled all the "nonsense" regarding his supposed fears over homesickness.

The left-back missed World Cup selection for South Africa two years ago at the expense of Aston Villa's Stephen Warnock with reports around the time suggesting he found it difficult being away from his family.

But the 27-year-old has been picked in Roy Hodgson's European Championships squad and believes that will now end all doubts, telling "Hopefully this puts all that nonsense to bed and we can move on from that. Because there was stuff that was said around that time that was really taken out of context. It will be nice to put that to bed."
