THE COUNTDOWN: Nine days to go!

PIC OF THE DAY: Some serious sand skills here - the locals have sculpted Neymar, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo on Rio's Copacabana beach, just down the road from England's hotel!


- England have reached Miami, but had to abandon their outdoor training session and hit the indoor gym instead - due to torrential rain in Florida!

- Falcao is out of the World Cup due to his long-term injury and has been officially dropped from Colombia's 23-man squad. It's a massive blow!

- Italy named their final 23-man squad for the World Cup yesterday - Marco Verratti, Andrea Pirlo and Mario Balotelli are in, but ex-Man. United striker Giuseppe Rossi was dropped, and did NOT take it well!

- Japan have played a friendly against England's Group D opponents Costa Rica - and won 3-1, with Shinji Kagawa on the scoresheet!

- Around 10,000 people turned up to an open training session for Brazil, and Neymar took centre-stage with tricks, flicks and wicked penalties!
