Bournemouth winger Junior Stanislas expects a tough training camp in Dubai.
Stanislas, who scored in a 4-1 Carabao Cup third round win over Everton before the World Cup break, admits he is expecting a “mini version" of pre-season.
He told afcb.co.uk: “I'm looking forward to the training camp in Dubai.
“A bit of warm weather will be nice and the boys get away from everything and really focus on the work.
“It will be hard work. We've had a few pre-seasons together as a group and it's tough.
“This will be a mini version of that so the lads will work hard and be ready to go when we come back."
