The English champions are in Yokohama to play a pre-season friendly match with local club Yokohama F. Marinos on Tuesday.

Before the game, some of the players went out and visited the children who were severely affected by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami, as well as the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

Jonny Evans, Jesse Lingard, and Ben Amos spent a very light time with the children over tea and cakes at the Fukushima Cafe, a project set up by UNICEF to help the displaced families.

The time ended with the players and the children exchanging some presents and taking lots of photos.
