Prince of Wales, William, paid a visit, on Monday, to the official England World Cup team squad as the President of the Football Association. 

Prince William said: "I'm really here to just kind of point out that the rest of the country's behind you," adding: "We're all rooting for you. Enjoy it."

The President of the Football Association received a signed Jersey from the entire squad in return.

He made a reference to the role of the team's coach Gareth Southgate who took the team to the 2018-world cup semi-finals: "What you and Gareth have built here is something special, that's clear to see," continuing: "Play for each other, support each other, enjoy it and I'm sure you'll go far," he added.
