ENGLAND are currently having their final session before facing Senegal in the last-16 of the World Cup on Sunday.
The squad are training at the Al Wakrah SC Stadium in the Qatar sunshine as they gear up for their first knockout game.
England booked their place in the knockout stages as group winners after beating Wales in the Battle of Britain on Tuesday.
Gareth Southgate‘s gave his side a day off on Wednesday before enjoying a light recovery session the following day.
But with the game less than 36 hours away, the Three Lions have been stepping up their preparations for their first meeting with the African champions.
All 25 players were present, which means Southgate will have a full squad to choose from tomorrow.
Harry Kane might not have scored in the tournament, but the captain looked relaxed as he took to the training pitch.
As did Southgate, despite the England boss having some selection headaches following the win over Wales.
Marcus Rashford and Phil Foden both impressed after making their first starts of the tournament in that game.
And the manager must decide whether to stick with the Manchester duo or recall Raheem Sterling and Bukayo Saka, who were quiet against USA but shone against Iran.
HOW TO GET FREE BETS ON THE WORLD CUP
Elsewhere, there’s a competition at right-back, with ex-Tottenham pair Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier fighting for a starting place.
Southgate will also weigh up whether to bring Mason Mount back after his rest against the Welsh, with Jordan Henderson starting in his place.
