England coach Roy Hodgson is hopeful that England will come up with a good show at the European Championships, and thus he wants to keep his team secrets as close to his chest as possible. As a result, England will not train at the Euro 2016 stadiums, ahead of their games.
The coach and the backroom staff feel that their preparations were monitored by their opponents Italy during the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil and therefore they suffered a defeat in their opening game of the tournament.
Thus, England have turned down UEFA's customary invitation to train at the match venues in the evenings before their games.
England will train at their base in Chantilly, which is located just north of Paris. From their base, they will travel to Marseille, Lens and Saint-Etienne on matchdays.
England have been pitted against Russia, Wales and Slovakia in Group B of Euro 2016. Wayne Rooney & co. will play their matches against these opponents at the above mentioned places respectively.
They will travel to these venues just ahead of their matches and will try to get used to the turf and conditions as quickly as they can.
England will kickstart their Euro 2016 campaign against Russia at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille on June 11.
