England were greeted by horns, horses and handshakes as Roy Hodgson's men arrived at their Euro 2016 base in Chantilly.
Ahead of Saturday's Group B opener against Russia, the Three Lions flew from Luton to Le Bourget Airport on Monday afternoon before making the near 20-mile journey from Paris.
Quite the fanfare welcome the squad at the five-star Auberge du Jeu de Paume hotel in Chantilly, where horses led in the team coach, flanked by security and police.
The riders, donning ceremonial costume, were from the nearby Museum of the Horse, while hunting horns sounded as the coaching staff and players made their way off the coach.
Hotel staff, the mayor of Chantilly and representatives of local club US Chantilly, where England will be training during Euro 2016, were among those greeting the squad, with gifts exchanged.
A large media presence and smattering of locals were also in attendance when the team arrived at 2.50pm local time, with a short behind-closed-doors training session to be held later in the day.
