When the players had their training session Monday, two days ahead of the Slovenia game, there seemed no sign of discord during the 15-minute session the media were allowed to observe.
England needs to beat Slovenia at Port Elizabeth on Wednesday to guarantee staying in the competition after draws with the United States and Algeria. England players were booed by their own fans after the 0-0 draw against Algeria in Cape Town.
Because heavy rain has left the playing surface at the Nelson Mandela Stadium in poor condition, England and Slovenia may not be able to train on it Tuesday. England has asked FIFA if it can stay behind at its training camp in Rustenburg to hold its training session there and fly to Port Elizabeth later in the day.
