, England stars treated to surprise live gig by Robbie Williams as part of preparation for World Cup clash vs France

ROBBIE WILLIAMS has been helping England to prepare for their crunch clash against France by performing a secret gig in the squad’s camp.

Gareth Southgate is trying to keep his squad as relaxed as possible ahead of Saturday’s quarter-final.

So the Three Lions boss drafted in former Take That star Williams for a singalong.

As revealed by The Telegraph, Williams performed for the team last night at their Souq Al Wakra headquarters.

Williams, 48, is in Qatar to perform at Doha Golf Club despite criticism of the Gulf State’s stance on gay rights and migrant workers who built the stadiums for the World Cup.

However, Williams has defended his decision to play in Qatar.

While the England squad have no doubt been training hard to ensure they are in the best shape possible to face the world champions, they have also been relaxing to ensure they are not too tense for the occasion.

Just like the last World Cup, the inflatables are back with the squad.

On social media Bukayo Saka’s “spelling school” has been an incredibly popular addition as players try to spell out words – often in resounding failure.

Saka warmed England fans hearts when he asked for a selfie with former England captain David Beckham.

Beckham visited the squad earlier in the week to give them a pep talk ahead of the clash against France.

On the other hand, the Three Lions have been given a weather boost with a forecast revealing the temperature is set to cool on Saturday and there could even be RAIN.

Southgate may be boosted further by the return of Raheem Sterling following his burglary hell.
