Sven-Goran Eriksson will have words with Wayne Rooney after newspaper allegations claim that the striker has lost £700,000 in gambling debts since the start of the season.
Only five weeks remain until England's World Cup squad travel to southern Portugal for a pre-tournament training camp, but Football Association's director of communications, Adrian Bevington, stressed there was no problem.
Adrian Bevington: 'The FA would like to make it clear we are unaware of any problems in the England team dressing room due to issues surrounding gambling or anything else come to that.
'Under Sven the England team have enjoyed a fantastic spirit within the camp, a fact that is regularly made by the players publicly.
'This spirit has ensured qualification to three consecutive tournaments.
'However, on being made aware of these allegations by the Sunday Mirror we believe England head coach Sven-Goran Eriksson will speak to the players allegedly involved to clarify the facts.
'It's important the fans know everyone connected to the FA and the England team is determined to do all they can to achieve success in Germany this summer.
'We should also state there is little the FA can do to prevent any individuals gambling privately on horse or greyhound racing though there are rules preventing betting on any football matches or competitions they are involved in.'
