By Nicholas Veevers in Medellin
England U20s sampled the stadium in which they will open their FIFA World Cup campaign on Wednesday afternoon, as plans for the game with Korea DPR were stepped up a notch in Medellin.
All teams are granted a 45-minute training session at the stadium in which they play prior to each game in the competition and Brian Eastick's squad made the most of it as they look to further acclimatise themselves to the South American conditions.
With the pitch looking in fine condition and the largely refurbished stadium looking splendid in the Colombian sunshine, the players were even joined for the session by The FA's Head Of Elite Development Gareth Southgate, who arrived in Medellin late on Tuesday evening.
Around 45,000 people are expected to attend the game on Friday, as it's the first match of the World Cup and is followed by the other group clash between Argentina and Mexico and Eastick hopes there will be a great atmosphere for his players to experience.
"The stadium here is magnificent," said Eastick after the session, speaking to a sizeable Colombian media pack, who fervently watched his side at work.
"I first came here when we did the recce and it was very impressive then and now that the work has been completed and the stadium will be full as expected, it will be a fantastic environment for the players to perform in.
"It will be a great experience for players from all of the teams here."The game with Korea DPR will be shown live on Eurosport and kicks-off at 8.30pm BST.
