Last Updated: 10/06/16 2:27pm
England manager Roy Hodgson was in good spirits as he poked fun at the media by holding up a mini sheet of paper during an open training session on Friday morning.
The 68-year-old was all smiles as he produced a small scrap of white paper from his pocket and held it up, seemingly mocking assistant Ray Lewington who was photographed on Tuesday carrying a clipboard with a number of player names written on headed Football Association notepaper.
All the England squad trained at their base in Chantilly ahead of the trip south to Marseille where they will open their Group B campaign against Russia on Saturday.
Hodgson spoke to captain Wayne Rooney and Jack Wilshere during the session as he made his final preparations for the match.
He has yet to name his team but there have been suggestions that Adam Lallana and Raheem Sterling could start at the expense of James Milner and Jamie Vardy.
Hodgson's bit of fun follows on from Chris Coleman's spoof Wales teamsheet during a training session on Wednesday.
Coleman also played a joke on the media as he displayed a piece of paper which showed the Wales team for their clash with Slovakia in Bordeaux on Saturday to be: Banks, Cafu, Carlos Alberto, Beckenbauer, Moore, Best, Socrates, Charlton, Zico, Pele, Maradona.
