ENGLAND TRAINS HARDER FOR THE WORLD CUP

English players fight to beat Manaus heat

Three Lions Coach, Roy Hodgson has his players training on all perimeters of the pitch, in multiple layers of clothes and temperate weather conditions to replicate the hostile environmental and weather conditions they expect in their base, Manaus at the World Cup.

Manaus which is in the Amazonian region of Brazil, has a tropical monsoon climate with short dry season. The area is covered by forests (41%), croplands (39%), lakes and rivers (18%), and grasslands (2%). And is characterized by essentially constant daily high temperatures, with daily highs around 89°F throughout the month, exceeding 93°F or dropping below 84°F only one day in ten. During the World Cup, the daily low temperatures are expected to  be around 74°F, falling below 72°F or exceeding 76°F only one day in ten.

The England coach really has the World Cup in mind, with the expectation of what the temperature would look like and he is not letting anything to chane. ''We will have to get used to real heat and humidity. Normally they would just wear a T-shirt, but they had a lightweight training top on and a waterproof top as well.

''When they could take their tops off they were quick to whip them off so it is obviously working.'' Hodgson said

The coach is really trying to get his players to be ''comfortable being uncomfortable.'' and is leaving no chances to unexpected situations.
