Wayne Rooney's wife Coleen is set to fly to Poland to join her husband at Euro 2012.

She is one of a number of Wags who will travel to England's base in Krakow.

The couple will be reunited after spending their fourth wedding anniversary apart today.

Coleen will also take their two-year-old son Kai on the trip.

Happy 4th wedding Anniversary . Me and Kai are so excited to see you tomorrow!!! 😘

She wrote a message on Twitter which read: "Happy 4th wedding Anniversary @WayneRooney. Me and Kai are so excited to see you tomorrow!!!"

Defender Phil Jones' girlfriend Kaya Hall tweeted today that she was already on her way to eastern Europe.
She wrote: "Aw Happy Anniversary Coleen!! Might see you out there xxx" and later added that she was at the airport.

According to reports, goalkeeper Joe Hart's partner Kimberly Crew, former captain John Terry's wife Toni and Andy Carroll's girlfriend Stacey Miller are among the other Wags due to fly out.

Before the England team set off for Poland, coach Gary Neville vowed that there would be no repeat of the debacle at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

In the spa resort of Baden Baden six years ago, England's presence was completely overshadowed by that of their glamorous wives and girlfriends, who became a magnet for photographers and a massive distraction.

But Neville insisted: "It is a different world now and those mistakes won't happen again under any manager or any regime. The platform won't be given.

"We are managing it this time in a completely different way. We are here to play football. We are here to work."

England's response to Baden Baden was to shut their players away in the relative isolation of Rustenburg in South Africa in 2010. But that did not work either, with many players complaining of boredom.

Mark Perryman, the convener of the London England Fans' group, said supporters would have no problem with the Wags being in Krakow "as long as it doesn't distract the players".

He added: "It's entirely up to the players and the management.

"Plenty of fans have got their wives and girlfriends here."
