Although they fell agonisingly short in the Euro 2020 final last Sunday, England's heroes are in good spirits as they rest up following the rigours of the tournament.

Gareth Southgate's side were defeated on penalties by Italy but they have plenty to be proud of after taking the Three Lions to their first major tournament final in 55 years.

The players are now enjoying some well-earned time off before returning to their clubs for pre-season training.

Showing the bond between the England squad, many players have jetted off to spend their holidays together, having already spent the previous six weeks in a bubble.

Shaw thumped the table as Mount pointed to the sky and belted out 'Sweet Caroline'

Manchester United's Luke Shaw, Chelsea's Mason Mount, West Ham's Declan Rice and Manchester City's Kyle Walker are among those to fly abroad.

And footage has emerged of the quartet giving a spirited rendition of Neil Diamond's 'Sweet Caroline' at a restaurant.

The song was adopted as England's unofficial anthem at Euro 2020 and fans had plenty of opportunity to sing it on England's run to the final.

Southgate himself noted "You can't beat a bit of 'Sweet Caroline'" and described the classic as "a belter".

Rice was equally amused by boyhood friend Mount's rendition

It certainly appears England's players enjoyed the song throughout the tournament, as they are continuing to sing it on their holidays.

Shaw, Mount and Rice remained seated and smacked the table in time with the song, while Walker rose to his feet and swung his shirt at the famous chorus.

Meanwhile, Wembley DJ Tony Parry has opened up on the decision to play 'Sweet Caroline' instead of Fat Les' 'Vinadloo' after the 2-0 victory over Germany in the last 16, when the song took on new significance for England fans.

Walker stood up and gave it some welly as he sang the chorus and swung his shirt

"I was going to play ‘Vindaloo’, but went with my gut," Parry said of the decision to put on 'Sweet Caroline'.

"Even the German fans were belting it out in the end. It’s a song that all fans can enjoy. The match director said in my in-ear 'the world’s been closed for 18 months… let 'em have it'."

England's victory over Germany was their first at a major tournament since the 1966 World Cup final, and it was arguably the moment when belief began to grow.

Mount and Co. clearly have happy memories of Euro 2020 despite their heartbreak in the final

Captain Harry Kane found himself lost for words as he tried to conduct a post-match interview as the song continued to ring around Wembley.

The Three Lions would go on to smash Ukraine 4-0 in the quarter-finals and overcome Denmark 2-1 after extra-time in the semi-final.

And although they fell just short against Italy, England fans will always associate 'Sweet Caroline' with their run to the Euro 2020 final.
