There was little evidence of disharmony in the England camp when Daniel Sturridge uploaded a photo of the squad huddled together on the team bus.
Aside from Raheem Sterling and Wayne Rooney, who appeared disinterested at the prospect of appearing on Sturridge’s Instagram feed, the bunch were happy to be snapped as they relaxed ahead of Saturday’s Group D opener against Italy in Manaus.
Club allegiances were cast aside, with Manchester United defender Chris Smalling and Liverpool frontman Sturridge particularly pally on the back row, to suggest this England squad was more at ease than their predecessors in South Africa four years ago.
