RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) -- Twenty-five minutes into England's training session, cameras were ushered away and the players continued their drills in private. It's not as if the squad has any secrets of success to hide.

England was alive in the World Cup for less than a week. Losses to Italy and Uruguay sent England crashing out of the tournament before the second round for the first time since 1958.

The players will sign off with a Group D finale against Costa Rica on Tuesday when the Three Lions' pride is all they have to play for.

Two players -- Wayne Rooney and Joe Hart -- are due to speak to the media later Saturday for the first time since England's embarrassing exit, which was sealed by Italy's loss to Costa Rica on Friday.
