ENGLAND have headed to a luxury pad to get pampered before their next clash with the Czech Republic.
The team checked into Tottenham Hotspur’s Myddelton Lodge after they were booed off the pitch in Wembley this week for their shock draw with Scotland.

The Three Lions, who had been based at Hilton’s St George’s Park in Burton, were taken straight to their new digs in North London after Friday’s match.
They will hide out in the 40-bedroom swanky Myddelton Lodge until Tuesday when they will kick off against Patrik Schick’s side.
Every player has their own room which is completely soundproof and they each have individual codes to open their doors.
The rooms are packed with hi-tech gizmos, and each bed has its feet tucked away so the squad can’t stub their toes.
In their rooms the lighting automatically changes depending on the time of the day and can be adjusted on an iPad.
All the player’s rooms look out onto a beautiful communal garden area, which has love Island style bean bags and sun loungers.
More importantly, the basement has a gym complete with an altitude chamber, massage beds, and a doctor’s surgery.
And all of the changing room lockers have padded drawer – so the team’s expensive watches don’t get scratched.
Boss Southgate even has his own private quarters on the upper floor, called the Myddelton Suite.
The lodge featured on Spur’s Netflix documentary All Or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur, and is used exclusively as a training camp.
Yesterday 14 members of the squad were seen training there, including sub Jack Grealish and Manchester United’s Harry Maguire.
Gareth Southgate says England are 'a work in progress' and playing catch-up with fellow Euro 2020 favourites.
He said: “Some teams are at a different point in their development.
“The run that Italy have had – 28 or 29 games unbeaten – and we know what France and Portugal have done over the last few years.
"And Belgium have been the No 1 team for four years.
“So that’s the level. That’s the standard we’ve got to aspire to. We’re a work in progress.”
But Harry Kane believes England can still go all the way at the Euros.
He said: “We still believe we have a great chance in this tournament and that's how we will feel all the way to the end.
“I mean you just look at the last European Championship – I don't think Portugal won a group game but they ended up winning the tournament.
“It's slightly rare that you win all your group and knockout games and have a straight line to the top and lift the trophy.
“Sometimes you have a few ups and downs, maybe a few reality checks to make you work on a few things.
“It helps the team and the environment and helps you improve for the later stages of the tournament and that's the case for us.”
