ENGLAND’S World Cup stars enjoyed a relaxing trip to the beach during some down time before the crunch clash with Wales.

The Three Lions face their neighbours on Tuesday evening knowing their place in the last 16 is still not definitely confirmed.

And at the weekend, the squad headed out for a gentle stroll in the Qatari heat to unwind.

Video footage from Channel 5 shows the England team decked out in Nike gear.

Most opted for sliders but a few chose trainers as pretty much all of the players wore sunglasses.

And Aaron Ramsdale wisely took extra precautions by wearing a cap to protect his neck while Conor Coady sensibly carries a bottle of water.

John Stones, Eric Dier and Jude Bellingham are then seen soaking up the rays after removing their tops beside the water.

Harry Maguire enjoys a good chat with back-up goalkeeper Nick Pope with Callum Wilson clearly having a great time as he rocks a beaming smile.

Kalvin Phillips, who looks dapper with his shades, tattoos and freshly-done hair, even poses for selfies with a few delighted England fans who have made the trip out to Qatar.

On Tuesday, Gareth Southgate’s men trained in 31C as they made their final preparations before the Wales match.

HOW TO GET FREE BETS ON THE WORLD CUP

A win would guarantee England top Group B and then play the runners-up from Group A, which could be any of the Netherlands, Ecuador or Senegal.

James Maddison stepped up his levels once again after missing the first two matches through injury.

However, Ben White sat out of the session through illness.

Jordan Henderson is expected to start against the Dragons – which could see wonderkid Bellingham drop to the bench.

The Liverpool captain was a calming figure when he came on as a second half substitute against USA on Friday.

Southgate is unlikely to make a raft of changes and he could still stick with Bukayo Saka and Raheem Sterling either side of Harry Kane.

There are strong calls for Phil Foden to start as he is enjoying a good season with Manchester City.
