thumbnail Hello,

The Oranje see the historic World War II concentration camp ahead of Euro 2012 to gain some perspective, while the Manchester City defender has a nightmare on the platform

With Euro 2012 only two days away, the Netherlands squad paid a visit to Auschwitz to gain some perspective ahead of their opener against Denmark.

Joleon Lescott's decision to take the train appeared to backfire somewhat, as British Public transport cannot even accomodate one of England's potential starting centre-backs.

Carefully hand-picked and unashamedly mad, Goal.com presents the latest round-up of the wonderful world of Twitter…


"We visited Auschwitz with the team today. Unbelievable, this is something I will never forget."

Netherlands midfield-maestro Rafael van der Vaart was clearly affected by the excursion. Can't quite see how that puts you in the right frame of mind for an international tournament, but that's just me.


"In #Auschwitz with the #Holland team. Undescribable what has happened here. We may never forget. Respect."

Jonny Heitinga also Tweets his amazement at the surroundings.


"Few of the lads having a go on the golf simulator"

Republic of Ireland striker Simon Cox becomes the first international footballer to question reality. Stick to the real thing.


"Got to the station with time to spare then they change the platform with a minute to go, nearly miss it. BritishRail at its finest"

Joleon Lescott comes to terms with the typically British transport system - it's all that Jubilee traffic. Shouldn't you be in Poland, Joleon?


"Poland Bound....."

Well, perhaps this answers my question. Glen Johnson confirms he truly is in Roy Hodgson's England squad. I hope those aren't full-stops of fear... (those last ones were).
 

"Just been told buy an un-named source that @seanstledger12 is paying a well known person on twitter to tweet his name for followers?"

Simon Cox again here, letting us know that Sean St Ledger is fraudulently accumulating Twitter followers. I can't think of a worse crime. How dare he!


"#me #euro2012 #buzzing"

England striker Jermain Defoe hints that he is ever-so-slightly excited for Euro 2012. #Me #too #Jermain.
