This saw a brimming squad take to the Beckenham pitches, with Roy Hodgson able to assess the vast majority of his players.

Speaking in his pre-Wolves press conference, Hodgson was positive about squad fitness, and Jeffrey Schlupp this week said: "Most of the players are fit now and it’s nice to give the gaffer some headaches about picking the team.

"He said it to us as well: there are a lot of fit players trying to get into that team, so if anything, we’ve all got to up our performances to make sure we stay in the team."

After a positive test for COVID-19 and subsequent isolation, Butland was able to join his teammates for the first time, training alongside Vicente Guaita, Stephen Henderson and goalkeeper coach, Dean Kiely.

You can see how the lads got on in the gallery above.
