Everton took a break from dreary, cold, Northwest England this week with a trip to the island of Tenerife off the coast of Spain for “warm weather training.” Some of this training includes lounging by the pool. After the long, tiring, congested English holiday schedule – four games in as little as 10 days – it’s hard to begrudge players a little relaxation in the mid-Atlantic sunshine.
That said, what to make of this picture U.S. National Team keeper Tim Howard posted on his Instagram account Monday? Yes that is indeed England left back Leighton Baines in the background creeping like a modern day Johnny Cage.
Either way, Tim, we still miss the beard.
