St George’s Park is like ‘lads’ holiday’ for England with F1 simulators and golf

Arsenal star Aaron Ramsdale has given an insight into what St George’s Park is like for the England squad when they meet up for international duty.

Ramsdale is yet to make his debut for the Three Lions but has been part of the squad since he was called up by Gareth Southgate for the Euro 2020 tournament.

He has impressed for the Gunners in their recent unbeaten run, particularly in a man of the match display in the win over Leicester City.

Those performances have seen some call for the former Sheffield United and Bournemouth keeper to take over from Jordan Pickford as England’s number one goalkeeper.

The 23-year-old could be given his chance in this international break, with England facing Albania and San Marino in their final World Cup qualifiers.

And he has now given an insight into what life is like inside the Three Lions’ base at St George’s Park, which is famed for its player-friendly atmosphere.

“What they did with St George’s in The Euros, we had a golf simulator, cinema screen, half a basketball court, Formula 1 simulators, so the days were full and we had movie premieres,” he said.

“We watched Top Gun 2 and it’s not out yet until November – it’s better than the first one, and I was saying I don’t think the first one can be topped, it’s really good.

“And Tom Cruise FaceTimed the team to say ‘I hope you enjoy it’, so it was just amazing the lads were just – literally, it was just like a lads’ holiday that environment.

“Then when we worked, we’d work for three hours of a day, and for, that three hours, it was full focus, but for the rest of the time it was such a laugh and everyone got stuck in with everyone.”

Ramsdale could make his debut on Friday night when Albania visit Wembley or on Monday when Southgate’s men travel to San Marino.
