FANS were left gobsmacked by the stacks of pizza boxes in the England dressing room after last night’s record-breaking 10-0 win in San Marino.
Piles of pizzas can be spotted in the background of a video posted to the official England Instagram last night showing Gareth Southgate addressing his players.

The England boss was awarding debutants Aaron Ramsdale and Conor Gallagher their first caps, but fans couldn’t help but notice the insane amount of pizzas.
One fan commented: “Is it me. Or is that a stack of pizza boxes for the boys? ”
Another added: “Lots of Pizza ”
Comedian and former Soccer AM presenter Lloyd Griffith jokingly commented: “Any info on the pizza?”
While @nv_gv19 also chipped in, saying: “They have got enough pizza to feed the whole of San Marino.”
Harry Kane had a record-breaking night by scoring his second England hat-trick in a row, as well as becoming the first player to net four in one match since 1993.

But Kane will have to hope that new Spurs boss Antonio Conte doesn’t spot the video, with the Italian manager imposing strict new dietary rules on the team.
The former-Chelsea boss has reportedly banned ketchup and mayonnaise from the Spurs canteen after assessing that his struggling squad is overweight.
The Athletic has also reported that Conte quickly removed sandwiches from the menu and has instructed chefs not to cook with oil and butter.
It is claimed that Conte believes his squad’s lack of fitness is a key factor behind their poor form this season, with the club sat ninth in the league after 11 games.
Conte imposed the same strict dietary and fitness regime at Chelsea when he took over in 2016 – banning his players from eating pizza and drinking fizzy drinks.
And his ban on treats worked wonders, with the Italian leading Chelsea to the league title in his first season, scooping the Prem Manager of the Season award.
