And both players were involved on Monday afternoon, as England's Euro preparations were stepped up ahead of the trip to Czech Republic next week with a lively session which was captured by the FATV cameras for the video below.

After a 3-1 win over Republic of Ireland last Friday, the Three Lions will face their final warm-up game for the Euros on Thursday evening when they play Belarus at Barnsley's Oakwell home.

Southgate's squad will be completed when Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane arrives on Tuesday afternoon, after he was also given extra time to rest following a busy season for him at White Hart Lane.

Tickets for the Belarus game are on sale now, priced at £10 for adults and £5 for concessions. Click here to purchase online.
