England are spending time in the Algarve and Miami in preparation for the expected hot and humid conditions, although their training camp in Portugal has not exactly gone to plan so far weather-wise.
The squad arrived in Vale do Lobo on Monday and, after torrential rain on Tuesday, were greeted by blustery conditions for their first and only open training session on Wednesday.

More than 100 journalists and cameramen were in attendance for the session in which all 23 players chosen for the World Cup were in action.
Arsenal duo Oxlade-Chamberlain and Wilshere have been slight concerns ahead of the World Cup after they ended the season with groin and foot injuries respectively, although both took a full part in training on Wednesday morning.
Manchester United defender Jones is the major concern in Roy Hodgson's squad and was again restricted to a non-contact session.
Having warmed up with England's other defensive players, he went off to do a light session with physio Steve Kemp as he continues his return from a shoulder injury.
Jones was joined in non-contact training by standby John Stones. The Everton defender was brought to Portugal in case Jones was unable to recover from injury, but the back-up player tweaked his knee in training on Tuesday.
Stones' injury is not considered to be serious and Jon Flanagan, the other standby player in Portugal, took a full part in training in which the players used the official World Cup ball.
Hodgson said: "The first three days have gone as well as I could possibly have hoped for. But there's a long way to go and three more days to get through but we've made a good start.
"We had a slightly unfortunate incident with John Stones. He twisted his knee very slightly in training but it's nothing serious. He could have trained but we decided to leave him out because it's so early on and we don't want to take any risks.
"It was nice to see Phil Jones joining in the warm-up. He's training very, very well and it looks like he might be taking part even before the end of this week."
