England Men's Senior Team
The Insider - 10 June
With lots going on, we bring you the latest from inside the camp. Today sees Jack Grealish, Jadon Sancho and Mason Mount feature...
Jadon’s got those MJ moves
We all know Sancho’s got the moves on the pitch, but did you know he’s got them off it, too? The Borussia Dortmund man joined us for the first episode of Diary Room and as the conversation turned to dressing room DJ, Jadon discussed his love for Michael Jackson, which was quite topical, as our cameras were on hand to capture him showing off his MJ moves in the gym ahead of a session at Rockliffe Hall last week.
Suits you, lads
As has become customary ahead of major tournaments, the squad gathered today for their UEFA EURO 2020 team photo. Joined by Gareth Southgate and his coaching team, the lads lined up in their tournament suits for the shot. While the final image may not show it, some needed a little more help than others with their ties. We’ll bring you the team photo and some brilliant behind-the-scenes imagery on Saturday, so make sure you keep an eye out for that!

Mount chips in on Lions' Den
Episode two of Lions' Den saw Mason Mount sit down with Josh Denzel at the England camp
Mason chips in
After Dominic Calvert-Lewin's impressive basketball skills on the opening episode of Lions’ Den connected by EE, expectation was high as Mason Mount stepped up to take on the Lions’ Ten golf challenge. The Chelsea man did not disappoint, scoring five in total but incredibly chipping in for an extra two points, with another lucky supporter from the EE Fan Wall receiving a signed ball and shirt thanks to Mount’s efforts.
Grealish’s Italian job
Jack Grealish was all smiles as he spoke to the media on Wednesday. Fresh from helping the players extend their lead in the daily three-dart challenge against attending journalists, the Aston Villa captain tackled questions on life in the happy Three Lions camp, comparisons with Gazza and how pre-game nerves are nothing compared to his driving test. But another surprise theme was news of a growing Grealish fan club in Italy with La Repubblica’s Antonello Guerrera quizzing him on comparisons to Roma legend Francesco Totti.
Time to face the music
Vocal chords are getting warmer down at BBC 5 Live’s on-site studio at St. George’s Park with a new karaoke craze taking over. After Dean Henderson’s impromptu version of Mario’s ‘Let Me Love You’ triggered Raheem Sterling to do his own cover of Gyptian’s ‘Hold You’, Conor Coady was next in line to show his X-Factor. So what did the Wolves skipper opt for? The slightly safer option of the theme tune to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
