When the individuals in Roy Hodgson's Euro 2012 squad received the call to tell them they'd been selected, I'm sure underwear was the last thing on their minds.  Yet amidst the excitment and prospect of playing against Europe's best, in magnificent stadiums and the chance to snatch glory for England, came the news that they'd be issued with official England under pants.

Thats right folks... This year's England squad will be issued with their very own official underwear.

Not impressed?  Well England back up goalie John Ruddy certainly is!  He can't believe the wonderful treatment the squad are receiving from the FA.

Ruddy will join the England squad just days after his wedding, which was planned well before he even considered an international call up being a possibilty.  But by the sounds of it, the free pants well and truly make up short honeymoon period!
