England's first training session at the new Wembley

The England squad trained at the new Wembley stadium for the first yesterday. Coach Steve McClaren led his players in a training session ahead of their Euro 2008 qualifiers against Israel and Andorra. According to The Mirror, the grass did not take very long to cut up with players regularly stamping divets back into the pitch. Groundsman Steve Welch was not too downhearted though. He said: "The pitch is in a much better position than I expected." [Rob Parker]
