Leighton Baines hopes Everton can reap the benefits of his World Cup disappointment.The left-back missed out on a place in England's final squad for the tournament in South Africa when manager Fabio Capello trimmed his initial 30-man party to 23.The only consolation for the 25-year-old was that he was able to begin his summer break earlier and he hopes that shows when the Barclays Premier League starts next month.Baines said: "Hopefully there will be positives to come out of a negative and I'll feel fresher come the start of the season. The summer is always nice and enjoyable. You relax and spend some time with the family - I think everyone enjoys it."I put my feet up and fully relaxed during those four weeks but, now it is coming to an end, I think everyone is ready to come back."I've had a nice few weeks' break but I was more than happy to come back and get training again."
