PHOTOS: England stars leave Luton airport with FA presents

Three Lions Wembley

The World Cup group stage may not even be complete, but England are already back home - and stars from Arsenal have a prize…

England returned just one dismal point from their World Cup effort in Brazil, finishing bottom of their group, behind third placed Italy, Uruguay and chart-toppers Costa Rica.

The rest of the nation are now locked into debate over long-term planning, with some claiming young stars such as Luke Shaw, Ross Barkley and Raheem Sterling must be given starting roles in order to best groom them for future international tournaments like Euro 2016 - should Roy Hodgson's Three Lions qualify.

While others believe that actually represents blinkered short-term planning and the real issue remains the way coaching is run from grass-roots to a professional level up and down the country, how there are fewer and fewer domestic talents at the elite-level English clubs as the Premier League welcomes more and more foreign imports.

Regardless, the main objective is to get England playing like the Netherlands, Germany, Chile, or even Colombia.

Well, the FA may have nailed it already as, within moments of touching down at Luton airport yesterday, Wednesday, it appears as though the England stars received a parting gift for their efforts in Brazil - an Xbox One console.

Now they really can play like, or as, Brazil… on the upcoming edition of FIFA 15 that is.
