    “They then hit the karaoke and were belting out Three Lions and Sweet Caroline.
    “They had an absolute blast and drank so much the bar was restocking the following morning.”
    And Kyle Walker’s Wag, Annie, 29, who married the defender last November, has embraced the cruise ship experience.
    She headed to the ship’s main theatre to enjoy a singer belting out classics including Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive and Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You.

    For kids and adults with a sense of fun, a Sportplex zone offers basketball, bumper cars and a roller disco.

    He is said to have headed to Manchester after leaving his training camp at his gym in Lancaster, where he is preparing for next Saturday’s fight against Derek Chisora.
    A source said: “Tyson was really worried when he heard his mum wasn’t well. They’re really close and he just wanted to be with her.
    “It’s all been a bit of a whirlwind but he’s determined he’ll be able to fight next week. After making sure she’s OK, he will return to training as soon as possible.
    “His fans mean everything to him and he doesn’t want to let them down.”
    Fury is now thought to be back at his training camp and is determined to fight Chisora at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
    But even without the health scare, it is unlikely Amber would have watched the Gypsy King’s bout.
    Fury said: “She has never been to one of my boxing fights, amateur or professional, and never been in the public eye.
    “She’s a private person. I don’t think it means anything to my mum. She doesn’t care if I’m world champion or not, as long as I’m healthy and happy.

    The ex-England skipper, who once said he was “the big man”, told them that having a “tiny penis” had not stopped him.
    However, it went down like a lead balloon among his Washington-based side. 
    A source said: “It was very funny and he hoped using personal references would make it look like the speech was from the heart. 
    “But the majority of his side were left bemused and struggled to understand what his sex life and size of his manhood had anything to do with what happens on the pitch. 

    “A few of the young lads were horrified. They don’t share the same British sense of humour.”
    The dad of four — who has been accused of cheating on wife Coleen, 36, several times — also opened up about his off-field mistakes.

    He told his players he came back from “f***-ups” and they could do likewise. 
    Rooney took over DC United in July but finished bottom of the MLS eastern conference.

    The girl pictured with Erling in Marbella this week has been dating him for months, pals said today.
    The pair have mutual friends after growing up together in Bryne and both played for the local football side.
    Haaland, who has scored 18 goals in 13 games for City, previously said his footballs were his “girlfriends”.
    He teased: “I sleep with the five balls for each hat-trick I have scored. I lie in bed and I feel good with them.”
    But this week pictures emerged of Erling with a girl in Marbella, where he owns a villa.
    Fans had no idea she was Isabel, who was also previously spotted watching with his family in the stands while he was playing for Borussia Dortmund.
    A source said: “It seems to be pretty serious. Isabel has travelled to Germany and England to see Erling and now she’s been with him in Marbella.
    “Isabel is well known for her beauty in Bryne. They’ve always known each other.”

    Erling, right, on a reported £860,000 a week, is on holiday as Norway failed to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar.
    An insider added: “Erling has the world at his feet — and women queuing up to be his partner.
    “But he’s a very sensible lad and it makes perfect sense he’s with a girl from his home town who he’s known for years.
    “He needs to be able to trust the people in his life and just concentrate on football.”

    Pals say Isabel, who works part-time in a fashion store, deleted her social media accounts when she grew closer to him.
    Erling was approached for comment.

    Qatar has rushed to knock up a number of “fan villages” to accommodate the more than one million fans expected to travel to the country during the four-week tournament.
    But many have complained that there were six-hour queues to enter the “sauna-like” cabins and that many sites were still unfinished.
    On Sunday, one disgusted World Cup fan walked away from his accommodation despite paying more than £2,500.
    The Sun Online already revealed that one visited by our reporter was as hot as 37C.
    Two of the fan camps – Fan Village Cabins Zafaran and Fan Village Cabins Free Zone – were reportedly hit with major issues last night.
    Fans reportedly were left sleeping rough, having to find alternative accommodation or waiting for up to six hours as they couldn’t access their pre-booked rooms.
    Multiple fans reported problems at check-in – with some even claiming they were told there simply wasn’t a room for them despite having a booking confirmation after forking out hundreds of pounds.
    And those that did get through complained about poor conditions not worth the price they forked out for the stay at the World Cup.

    Earlier on Wednesday, tensions reportedly spilt over, with one official seen trying to keep order in the fan zone.
    The country’s Supreme Committee confirmed to The Sun Online that it was aware of the issues facing fans.
    And they confirmed they would be offering FULL REFUNDS to fans and free alternative accommodation.
    In a statement, the Qatari Supreme Committee told The Sun Online: “We are aware that a number of fans have faced delays checking into select Fan Village accommodation due to owner and operator negligence.
    “A section of units in these facilities, which are delivered and managed by different private entities, have not met the required standards that were advertised to fans.
    “While these sites are managed by independent commercial entities, rectifying these issues remains the utmost priority for the Supreme Committee.
    “Full refunds are being offered to fans severely impacted by this issue as well as alternative accommodation which will be free of charge for the duration of their stay.”

    Supporters who turned up to their accommodation in recent days have described the fan villages as “unfinished”, with pictures showing workmen still on site, and piles of rubble littering the parks.
    “The beds are super hard and they only clean your room every three days – and I’ve had to chase down towels or toiletries,” one American fan staying at Zafaran until Friday told The Sun Online.
    “There is a lot of activity at the reception desk with many waiting a long time to ask question or get checked in.”
    “The waits don’t surprise me.”
    One Wales fan, who arrived in Doha on Sunday, told The Sun Online his arrival was “disorganised” – and things are only getting worse.
    “We were able to settle in before it has now got very busy,” he said.
