England players go to extreme measures to ensure they don't miss Love Island in Russia

The England squad land in Russia for the World Cup this afternoon ahead of their first game against Tunisia on Monday.

And, as a special request, they’ve asked to have English language TV channels in their hotel.

Sky Sports have sorted it for them so they can get four English channels in their rooms.

They have been given Sky Sports News, along with BBC 1 and ITV – so they can watch all the matches with English commentary – and were given one more option.

And the conclusive decision was taken to get ITV 2 in… so they can keep up with Love Island.

The ITV show has already gripped the nation after starting up again last week, and it appears to have gripped Gareth Southgate’s Lions too.

Southgate is keen for his charges to feel comfortable and at home throughout their stay.

The FA has spent thousands transporting their own gym equipment from St George’s Park to Repino to make sure they have the best facilities available.

England arrive at the Forrestmix Club after leaving Birmingham this afternoon, which will be home for the group stages at least.

Southgate opted for the resort due to the moderate weather and tranquility of a town with a population of just 2,400 that is 20 miles northwest of St Petersburg.

Every player has their own room but will be encouraged to spend most of their time in the communal areas and they are allowed to head to the nearby beach and wooded areas.

Players can have their families in the resort after matches to help them unwind during their down time.
