They might not be among the favourites for this year's World Cup, but Roy Hodgson and his England side have begun their journey to Brazil.
The squad assembled at Luton Airport for a final team photo before boarding a flight to Miami, where the next stage of their preparations will take place.
England are due to play two friendlies on the other side of the Atlantic before flying to Brazil for the tournament proper.
Dressed in matching grey suits, they took the opportunity to pose for several photos including the obligatory one on the steps of the plane.
England will play two friendlies at Miami's Sun Life Stadium against Ecuador and Honduras as a warm-up before their opening World Cup game with Italy in Manaus on June 14. The England squad on the steps of their plane
