Euro 2012: England players relax with WAGs in Poland

England players relax in Krakow with WAGs ahead of crunch match with Sweden

The WAGs arrived in Poland for Euro 2012 as John Terry's wife Toni and Wayne Rooney's wife Coleen jetted out to meet up with their husbands on an afternoon of relaxation for the England players.

The Three Lions are preparing for the European Championship Group D clash with Sweden on Friday evening after making a positive start against group favourites France on Monday.

The players enjoyed a stroll around Krakow on Wednesday afternoon in scenes which were far more subdued to those in Baden-Baden, Germany, at the World Cup in 2006.

Back then the likes of Victoria Beckham
and Alex Gerrard made headlines for their 57,000 shopping sprees and
attention-seeking behaviour at various drinking spots around the city.

Coleen seemed likely to follow the
same path again as she boarded a private jet at a cost of 14,000 to
join her husband Wayne in Krakow.

She even Tweeted
a photograph of herself boarding the flight with her two-year-son Kai
and brother Anthony McLoughlin, saying: 'Goodbye England…Hello
Poland!!!’

Meanwhile England boss Roy Hodgson
accepts his side will still need to claim a positive result from their
final game against Ukraine no matter what happens against Sweden in
Kiev.

Ukraine's victory over Sweden
following England's draw with France on Monday means, at the very least,
Hodgson's men will need a draw against the co-hosts and possibly might
have to beat them when they return to the Donbass Arena next Tuesday.

'What we know now is that, irrespective of Friday's result, we are going
to need a result against the Ukraine,' Hodgson told BBC Radio Five
Live.

'It's really bought the third game into focus for everybody in the group. A different result might have lessened that.'

Much will depend upon how England fare against the Swedes on Friday.

Once again the Three Lions will be without star striker Wayne Rooney, who serves the final game of his two-match suspension.

That dismissal in Montenegro last October has proved problematic for
Hodgson, who believes Rooney has as much influence over England's
fortunes as Zlatan Ibrahimovic has on Sweden.

'When you talk about Sweden, you talk about Zlatan Ibrahimovic and how
important he is for them – how he can decide a game,' said Hodgson.

The WAGS weren't the only ones enjoying themselves: Joe Hart, Ashley Cole, Joleon Lescott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also took time out to explore in Krakow

'Well, we have got one of those players in our squad. His name is Wayne Rooney.'

The Manchester United striker was obviously a frustrated spectator on
Monday and showed his eagerness to remain involved at the start of
training yesterday morning by carrying a bag of balls out onto the
practice field.

Hodgson seems to be leaning towards eventually naming Rooney as his
vice-captain and he lavished more praise on the 26-year-old as he
assessed is overall contribution.

'His training has been excellent and his attitude around the place has also been excellent,' he said.

'He's been very, very supportive of the younger players so he just needs
now to hang on for another couple of days because his chance will come
soon enough.

'He's desperate of course that we go far in the tournament because he wants to play in more than one game.'

After a brief reunion with family members yesterday, England were on
their travels again this morning as they flew out to Kiev, when
Liverpool's Martin Kelly is likely to be their only other absentee as he
struggles to recover from a virus.
