The Red Arrows have flown the flag above Saint George's Park to send the England team off to Russia for the World Cup 2018.

The squad of 23 watched on as the famous jets - who have recently received their approval to perform at airshows across the world - flew above them in formation. 

Players can be seen taking pictures and a photo from a Red Arrow shows the players looking at them from below. 

Last year, the Royal Marines trained the England squad in a special training session.
