Steven Gerrard, who wears the armband for club and country, took a selfie with England's head chef Tim De'Ath after chipping his tooth while eating a chicken breast. It was a great chirp from the skipper, who seems to really be enjoying updating his supporters through Instagram.
Is there anything Daniel Sturridge can't do? The Three Lions ace is an excellent striker, has people all over the globe trying to copy his trademark dance, he dabbles in fashion and music - and he's revealed he irons his own training kit!
Like many of us, the 24-year-old doesn't enjoy the chore, which he did while watching the NBA Finals between San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat. Such are his skills, he could probably do 'the Sturridge' while ironing.
Uruguay's Sebastian Coates was snapped in a cool picture with his fellow countryman Santiago Urrutia, who is a young racing driver. Meanwhile, over 5000 fans flocked to his side's first training session in Brazil, with the majority all trying to score a picture and autograph from Reds hitman Luis Suarez.
Raheem Sterling has admitted he's been spending most of his spare time in the England camp sharpening his FIFA 14 skills, and Luke Shaw was on the receiving end of his enhanced game play. The winger handed Southampton's left-back a 3-0 defeat, and posted on a humble brag on Twitter.
Mamadou Sakho is trying to rival Sturridge and Sterling as the squad's selfie king. The France defender has been posting several shots of him and his teammates - on the plane, in the airport, in the dressing room... Any bets on the big man capturing himself posing on the pitch?
