The humiliated England football team arrived home on Tuesday morning following their World Cup exit.

The players touched down at London's Heathrow Airport at around 6.20am to a nation left frustrated and miserable by their 4-1 defeat by Germany in Bloemfontein on Sunday.

England manager Fabio Capello's future hangs in the balance after he revealed on Monday that the FA will take two weeks to decide whether or not to keep him on in the post.

A low-key arrival saw the flops whisked to the VIP terminal and away from the watching media - but the misfiring players can expect the fall-out from their early exit to run well into the new Premier League season which kicks off in six weeks' time.

If that was not enough, the players had money and clothing - including pairs of underpants - stolen from their hotel rooms in South Africa before their departure.
