Villa striker Delfouneso hails England U21 squad spirit

Aston Villa striker Nathan Delfouneso says the England U21 squad is buzzing ahead of the Euros kicking off this week.

The squad are now set to move to their Tel Aviv base ahead of their opening match with Italy on Wednesday.

"There’s a lot to this place, it’s absolutely incredible and you can easily get lost here," the 22-year-old told TheFA.com. "There’s so much to do, and everyone has bonded really well.

"There’s the usual jokes and banter going around throughout the players and the staff, it’s all going smoothly and hopefully we can take that camaraderie into Israel.

"After training sessions, some of the lads have gone to the beach, some played golf and some just chilled.

"There’s swimming pools, bowling, table tennis, but I’ve been resting most of the time as it’s very hot. There’s no lack of options so the boys aren’t getting bored."
