CALLUM WILSON, Declan Rice and Jordan Henderson looked pumped up for the World Cup as England’s star hit the gym.
Gareth Southgate’s side’s opening group game against Iran is under a week away and the Three Lions took part in their first full session since arriving in Qatar last night.
Pictures showed the England boss putting the players through their paces at the Al Wakrah SC Stadium – where temperatures reached 32C on Wednesday – ahead of Monday’s opening game.
But it is not only out on the pitch that his squad are getting ready to try and bring football home.
And striker Wilson plus midfielders Rice and Henderson all looked ripped and ready for action in the team gym.
Newcastle United’s Wilson was all-smiles as he enjoyed a set on the kettle bells.
The 30-year-old has not represented the Three Lions since 2019.
But just like week the Toon ace revealed that his drive and hunger – which stemmed from his childhood – kept him pushing for a seat on the plane to the Middle East.
Rice, who has taken an EMPTY suitcase to Qatar to bring home the World Cup, was also hard at it as he took up part in a stretching and lifting exercise.
The confident England and West Ham ace revealed his extra bag when he joined up with Gareth Southgate’s squad at St George’s Park on Monday.
And experienced veteran Henderson, 32, also appeared to be in tip-top shape.
The Liverpool captain was decked out in shorts and vest as he lifted weights.
All three will be desperate to show Southgate that they deserve a chance to shine in Qatar as the big kick-off edges closer.
But one man who will not be ready to take on Iran is Kyle Walker after the full-back confirmed he will MISS the Three Lions’ opening game.
Southgate had already hinted the 32-year-old wouldn’t be available until later in the group stage after not featuring since October 2 due to a groin issue.
But the encouraging training pics suggest the Manchester City ace could be ready for the business end of the tournament.
He was seen jogging alongside his team-mates as the Three Lions trained in the Middle East climate.
England start their World Cup campaign against Iran on Monday, November 21 in Group B.
Next up is a clash against Gregg Berhalter’s USA.
And then a mouth-watering clash against neighbours Wales in the final game on November 29.
