Who’s Layton?

Everton fans have started a Twitter hash-tag campaign to get their left-back Leighton Baines into Fabio Capello’s England squad. Unfortunately, they spelt his name incorrectly in the trending tag.

The #LaytonBainesForEngland tag was retweeted by several Evertonians before the spelling error was spotted. The tweeter behind the campaign has since unleashed a new #LeightonBainesForEngland tag after the mistake was pointed out by fellow fans.
