Rice, Mount and Shaw sat at a long table enjoying a meal, while a remix of Diamond’s famous song ‘Sweet Caroline’ played over the sound system, with Shaw and Mount banging on the table in time on Saturday. .
As the pre-chorus began, a topless Walker, shirt in one hand, came to the table with arms outstretched and encouraged his teammates to sing along.
Mount then joined in, while Shaw laughed and Walker waved his shirt around his head. Mount and Walker happily sang the chorus while Rice filmed the singing on his phone.
Former Love Island contestant Josh Denzel, who was the lead host of the daily three lions show which was run by the official English media team during the tournament, got on friendly terms with several players as he interviewed them during the tournament and he was also at the table to film.
‘Sweet Caroline’ became the unofficial anthem of Euro 2020 – and the soundtrack of England’s summer – as Gareth Southgate’s players took to the fans and broadcast the song at Wembley Stadium after beating Denmark in the semi-final.

HARRY MAGUIRE’S 2020 MYKONOS NIGHTMARE
Harry Maguire was arrested last summer by a team of undercover agents called up from mainland Greece to tackle organized crime in Mykonos.
The incident was sparked after claims the English star’s sister had been injected with a substance by two Albanian men while they waited for a minibus in the Fabrika part of the island. As a result, a brawl broke out – including his brother Joe and friend Christopher Sharman.
The 28-year-old – who was found guilty of assaulting and bribing the Greek police – denied the charges, claiming he was the victim just hours after the court’s ruling.
Maguire also told the BBC that he believed he was abducted by fake police in Mykonos and that he tried to run away ‘in fear of his life’ after they punched him in the leg and told him he ‘will not play again’.
Maguire immediately appealed after being given a suspended jail term for his part in the brawl on the resort island. Under Greek law, Maguire will face a new trial on appeal, with the higher tribunal having up to eight years to hear the case.
Despite the fact that the court proceedings could not take place until 2028, Panaghiotis Poulios – the island’s chief prosecutor – has said he wants the case closed sooner rather than later.
