Stadium Training in Portugal / by Simon Mooney

I'm going through our England football team archive to find my best 100 pictures of a particular player. I photographed hundreds of training sessions during the six years I spent inside the camp and this selection is from the build-up to the four Euro 2004 games England played at the tournament. The night before a match, the players train at the stadium to get a feel for the pitch. Press photographers and television have the first 10 to 15 minutes of a session to get their pictures and I wait until they leave before my cameras come out.
