The pair visited the Athens Acropolis

But the pair were keen to enjoy a bit of sunshine so flew out to Greek capital Athens for a short holiday.

Lingard and Henderson visited the famous Acropolis – an ancient citadel located in the city.

They are staying at the plush Four Seasons hotel and Lingard shared a video of the stunning location on his Instagram page.

The pair also joked around with one another about which currency is used in Greece.

Lingard and Henderson’s friendship dates back to when they played together at Manchester United.

Henderson is still under contract at Old Trafford and is on loan at Forest until the end of the season.

Lingard left United for the City Ground in the summer after signing a one-year deal believed to be worth £150,000-a-week.

Several other stars not at the World Cup have also jetted away on holiday, with another former Red Devil Paul Pogba visiting Miami.
