You may not recognise the England squad in these photos – namely because they are shirtless, drinking and surrounded by women.
Andy Carroll has been spotted letting his hair down in Ibiza along with fellow England international Joe Hart following last week's heartbreaking Euro 2012 exit.
The Liverpool striker, who usually wears his hair in a ponytail, and the Manchester City goalkeeper were pictured partying shirtless at the opening of an Ibiza nightspot owned by Wayne Lineker, brother of Match of the Day presenter and former England striker Gary Lineker.

Hart was unable to save a single of
Italy's penalties, with only Riccardo Montolivio putting his effort wide
in England's 4-2 defeat, and could only watch Andrea Pirlo's brilliant
chipped 'Panenka' penalty hit the net.
Carroll was a second-half substitute
against Italy but, despite latching onto many long balls from Hart,
could not make a decisive impact on the game. The striker did not take a
penalty in the shootout, while Ashley Cole and Ashley Young missed for
Carrick was not selected by Roy Hodgson for the championships, despite a midfield injury crisis that robbed England of Jack Wilshere, Frank Lampard and Gareth Barry.

All three looked to be enjoying their break from action, with the new season eight weeks away.
