St George's Park: A tour of England's new training base

Former Gooner and ex-England defender Martin Keown goes on a tour of St George's Park, the English FA's new national football centre at Burton.

Costing around £100m, the centre is a 330-acre site which includes a grass replica of the Wembley surface with exactly the same mix of grass and artificial fibres, a full-size indoor pitch, and 11 outdoor pitches as well as an altitude chamber to mimic a variety of playing conditions.

The FA is hoping St George's Park will provide the basis for England success at future international tournaments.

It certainly is an amazing facility.
