World Cup 2014: Roy Hodgson's England squad forced to abandon first training session in Miami after floods
It has not been the warm-weather training experience expected
The squad arrived on Sunday afternoon for a week's warm-weather training at Barry University as well as two games at the city's Sun Life stadium against Ecuador on Wednesday and then Honduras on Saturday night - before they fly on to Rio de Janeiro for the tournament.
However, today is officially the first day of the hurricane season and locals have expressed surprise at the decision by the Football Association to rely on the weather in Florida. There has been heavy rain on and off all day in Miami, which is five hours behind the United Kingdom
It is not the first time that England have had to train under a cloud with grey skies dominating during their break in the Algarve last week, when they had to train in extra layers to recreate the conditions they expect to face in Manaus in their first World Cup game.
There was high security at Barry University's sports facilities with local police patrolling the complex in North Miami. The FA have brought a travelling party of 72 including their 25 players. The delegation, that includes coaches, sports scientists, administrators, masseurs and one psychiatrist is so large that they require two buses to travel to and from training sessions.
