    THAT'S ALL FOR NOW
    We're done here - but let's leave on a high note because an exciting new blog is heading your way tomorrow: World Cup Today (see what we did there?). That means SST is going for a long old nap while Brazil's extravaganza takes centre stage but the format will be the same: news, analysis and plenty of chance for you to get involved on Twitter, along with match updates once the action starts. Whatever the story, whoever the team, we'll have it covered. Join us in the morning!

    HARDAKER CHARGED
    A rugby league line now because Leeds full-back Zak Hardaker is facing a ban of between four and eight matches after being charged over allegations that he made a homophobic comment during the Rhinos' defeat at Warrington 10 days ago. The England international last week issued an apology for his comments but he'll appear in front of the RFL's disciplinary committee on Tuesday.

    BECKS APPEAL
    David Beckham spoke about Wayne Rooney, as well as England's young guns, at an event in London earlier today. Here's the video so you can listen in yourself...

    SUAREZ FITNESS
    Another of England's group opponents, Uruguay, will arrive in Brazil later today but doubts over the fitness of Luis Suarez remain.  The Liverpool striker, who suffered a knee injury training with his Uruguay team-mates and underwent an operation on May 22, says he will definitely be fit enough to play at the World Cup finals but told The Guardian it was not certain it would be in time to play against England.
    I saw reports saying that I had told the Liverpool players I would make it for the game against England, for sure, but I didn't say that. The day of the operation I exchanged messages with Stevie (Gerrard) and Glen (Johnson). They said: 'Hope to see you in Brazil'. And I said: 'Yeah, see you there'. That's not exactly the same thing. I never said I'd definitely be there.

    BECKHAM OPTIMISTIC
    Back to the football because David Beckham has been speaking about England's World Cup chances. Will the young Lions like Raheem Sterling get stage fright? No chance, says Becks.
    I'm very optimistic. I've obviously been to a few World Cups myself and I always used to go into any big tournament thinking we could go all the way; our players will be doing exactly the same. Are our young players up for it? Without a doubt they're up for it. People ask if they're ready to go into a World Cup but these players play in the biggest league in the world and against some of the best players in the world. It doesn't how young they are, they're prepared. The good thing about young players is that they're not scared - they'll be ready.

    HOCKEY WORLD CUP

    ENGLAND ITINERARY
    What's in store for England for the rest of the week? They've another training session - closed this time - tomorrow and we'll hope to hear from Roy Hodgson then, too. On Wednesday we should get to speak to a couple of the players, while on Thursday the squad will start that long journey to Manaus. Friday's the day they'll get the chance to train in the stadium, ahead of Saturday's opener - at 6pm local time, 11pm UK time - against Italy.

    OXLADE-CHAMBERLAIN UPDATE
    Another line from Rio to bring you and it's good news for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, it seems. He was wearing a knee bandage after picking up that injury against Ecuador but he had a light jog around the pitch and was all smiles. Steven Gerrard didn't take full part, though, stepping away from the action to do some shuttle runs on the sidelines. We understand he left the session early because of a "tight groin".
