Daily Echo: Saints captain Adam Lallana dances with Brazilian children Saints captain Adam Lallana dances with Brazilian children

THERE'S more than one way to warm up for a World Cup.

Saints captain Adam Lallana and some fellow England stars took some time out of their hectic training schedule in Brazil by dancing with the locals.

The team visited Rio's biggest favela, Rochina, and joined in with a demonstration of Capoeira skills - a mix of martial arts and dancing.

They also cast their eyes over the locals' football skills while watching a mini-tournament.

Lallana was accompanied by Daniel Sturridge, Danny Welbeck, Fraser Forster and Jack Wilshere.

England face Italy in their first group game on Saturday night in Manaus.

Are you serious??? Maybe some of that clean water would be a life changing experience, not meeting Adam Lallana.

I'm sure if you ask them they'll say it was one of the best experiences of their lives.

Still doesn't make him a tool for saying that it may be.
