MIAMI - England's World Cup training camp is off to a bad start in Miami, with heavy rain at the start of hurricane season forcing the team to scrap its first training session in Florida.

The 23-man squad had to train indoors at Barry University in Miami on Monday, a day after flying in for a week of training and warm-up matches before going to Brazil. Heavy rain also disrupted England's first training camp in Portugal last month.

England plays two matches at Sun Life Stadium, against Ecuador on Wednesday and Honduras on Saturday.

Roy Hodgson's team opens its World Cup campaign against Italy on June 14 in Manaus.
