Managing the time between games is always the hard part of tournament football.
It could be easy for the players to get bored, which could affect their focus.
Two years ago in Holland, there really was little for the players to do other than play in the games room or watch films.
But in Sweden, the days just fly by and the lads seem to be enjoying the whole experience.
Training has been excellent throughout, even the last couple of days when the searing heat could have slowed down the pace. The players do seem very hungry.
After they return from the training ground in the early afternoon, the rest of the day is there's.
The recreation room - where the boys watch TV, play on the Wii (Mario Kart appears to be the favourite game), play pool, table tennis or darts - is the main congregation area after lunch.
I was wandering through there a couple of days ago and while Walcott and Stearman battled it out in table tennis, Michael Mancienne was playing darts by himself and challenged me.
Usually a quick game of 301 is just that, quick. When I hit 130 with my three practice darts I took a psycholigical boost over Michael.
But when the arrows started to fly, he was soon down on a double finish, while I was chasing with three figures.
However, we both ended up on double-one and the game was dragging on, so I suggested nearest the bull to settle it.
On the oche first, I sunk the tungsten tip right in the bullseye. Again, Michael was reeling with my dart pretty much covering the red bit. That was until he went to the line and sent his dart straight in to join mine in the fifty.
These boys never give up do they. We called that a draw, with both our prides still intact.
Another place the players go to relax is the medical room, where massuers Stewart Welsh and Mark Holmes, physios Dave Galley and Derek Wright and the Doc, Mark Waller, do their stuff.
The TV in there has been showing games from the other group, and Confederations Cup matches too. The other night, I flittered between there for the Italy-Belarus game, and the basement TV room, where Sky's Martin Tyler and Andy Burton were watching the Sweden-Serbia game.
Last night was one of the trip's main team-building exercises - the quiz night. Organised by Steve Wigley, the Doc and Pat Frost the kitman played hosts and Mike, one of our video analysts, was in charge of the music round.
The boss picked the teams, and I was in team five with John Elsom from our international committee, my FA colleague Rachael as well as Mark Noble, James Milner, Fraizer Campbell and Richard Stearman.
And despite our poor team name which attracted boos from all around, The Academy of Football - Nobes was our captain and Rachael's a Hammers season ticket holder - were off to a flyer.
The picture round saw us move out in front thanks to the hawk-eyes of Milly and Nobes. But it was the music rounds that pushed us over the line. Fortunately for our team, Queen's Fat Bottom Girls and Jamiroquai's Deeper Underground are both on my ipod and some of the rubbish that booms out of the dressing room after a game helped Fraizer fill in the gaps.
So we ended up winning by four points, but all we got as a prize was a bit of Micah Richards' birthday cake, but it was nice.
The team was disappointed not to get any reward. This was just for pride though, we're here to win something else. Something much more important and it doesn't take a genius to know the answer to that one.Don't forget!
