Andy Scoulding, the FA’s head of performance analysis has created an iPad app allowing teams to study their opponents, according to The Guardian.

The Brazil 2014 scouting app has been specifically designed to tailor the needs of each team member corresponding with their position. When launched it allows players to access personal data and footage of their direct opponent ahead of games.

It’s not the first time the England side have used the app, they were first able to experiment with it during their successful two-year qualification campaign to reach the finals.

This serves as just one stage in preparation for the tournament after players have endured both basic training as well as individual unit sessions for goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and strikers.

Speaking out about the training Manchester City midfielder James Milner has said: “We’ve made progress. We haven’t left any stone unturned, and our preparation has been very good.

“We did two sessions last week in the heat chambers, 20 minutes and 30 minutes on the bikes, and we’re getting used to the conditions, simulating what we’ll have in Brail.”

If all it takes is an app to help us in the World Cup then we'll take it.
