What may at first seem a bizarre training session actually is the English squad recovering from their dramatic World Cup opener in a swimming pool. The photos instantly went viral, provoking an avalanche of reactions on social media.

After Monday's last-gasp 2-1 win against Tunisia, the English players had a recovery day in Repino, a Russian village serving as their base for the group stage. The team is now getting ready for the next Group G clash with Panama, with the preparations involving a bit of basketball and gym workouts.

The highlight of England's recovery day, however, was a spectacular race in the swimming pool, which saw Jesse Lingard, Jordan Pickford, Harry Maguire and Kieran Trippier ride inflatable unicorns.

The unusual photo session has given rise to many laughs and smiles on the Internet, with users praising England's great team spirit.

Some netizens, however, have been more critical of England's new relaxation method.

Others have gone even further to compare the unicorns with England's chances in Russia.
