A Plane Flies Over England Training Session With Tactical Advice For Upcoming Clash Against Croatia

A plane was spotted flying over England's latest training session with a solid piece of tactical advice as they prepare for their upcoming European Championship clash.

The Three Lions will face Croatia on Sunday afternoon at Wembley in their opening clash of Group D.

England will certainly be looking for revenge against the team who knocked them out of the 2018 World Cup - and some fans are keen to give them some tips before tomorrow's 2pm kick-off.

On a warm Saturday afternoon at St George's Park, Gareth Southgate and his 26-man squad were spotted looking up at a message that read: 'Most Croatia goals come down the left'

I mean, that would explain why Southgate has named four right-backs in his squad.

Here's some of the reaction from social media as the banner made its way across the Staffordshire sky.

So how will England line-up on Sunday afternoon at Wembley?

Gareth Southgate's assistant, Steve Holland, believes the Three Lions must strike the right balance and not play a 'fantasy football' line-up.

"Argentina had Dybala, Di María, Agüero, Higuaín, Messi," Holland said. "Icardi didn't make the squad. So you have an amazing array of talent but they went out in the round of 16. This is not fantasy football.

"It is nice to play that game but you can't just throw four or five players together. What that team showed is that if you try to cram too many in, you don't even get the best of the individuals that, if you play with fewer, they can provide.

"So our challenge is clear: we have to find the right balance."
