In an attempt to beat Brazil’s heat during the World Cup, England team players have resorted to wear three layers of clothing in their preparations for the showcase event. Its expected that the conditions will be dry and humid at Manaus, where England launch their campaign against Italy on June 14th.

England coach Roy Hodgson has been taking training sessions in Portugal, where the team is based and the coach wants that his players should sweat profusely as they play close to Brazil in the south coast.  Excerpts from the Telegraph reads, “The FA’s head of performance services, Dave Reddin, exercise scientist Chris Neville, Manchester United fitness coach Tony Strudwick and Arsenal nutritionist James Collins are being helped by three experts from Loughborough University. It has been reported that they  can tailor individual recovery drinks with different electrolytes depending on the amount of fluid that is lost through sweat.

“We did sweat testing today,” said Hodgson. “We have a T-shirt, a lightweight training tracksuit and on top of that the wet top. Three layers. Apparently, it is individual. People sweat differently and need different drinks or whatever.”

England have been pitted in a tricky group alongside Uruguaay, Italy and Costa Rica, the South American side who can also be heralded as a potential banana skin. England crashed out of the World Cup in the quarter finals in 2010 in South Africa after being thrashed by Germany by 4-1. The Barmy army though would claim were hard done by after Frank Lampard’s legitimate goal was failed to spot by the referee.
