Luka Modric: 'England good at set pieces

  • England’s Dele Alli did the Fortnite dance after scoring against Sweden

As quoted by the Mirror, Alli admitted about the Sweden game: "I spoke to the manager and some of my team-mates because I didn't feel like I was playing as well as I should have been".

To score in the second half, it gives you a lift.

"I think it's good the players understand it's a big moment for the country".

"I didn't feel nervous or anything like that". I don't know why, it's just a superstition. "As players, we know that sometimes you can have games where your control isn't as good as it should be or your decision making isn't as sharp - and I felt like it was one of those games", he said.

"I think we can beat Croatia, get in the final and anything can happen".

"I owe a lot to him for the chance he gave me at Tottenham, how much faith he put in me and how much he helped me improve as a player. I was in the right positions, so when it's like that you have to make sure you are doing the basics right", added the 22-year-old.

While watching this titanic struggle between two European footballing superpowers you may also have thought to yourself: "Praise the heavens, I'm finally able to enjoy a piece of entertainment which isn't infected by that accursed Fortnite video game that every fool and their auntie is chattering on about".

"The one thing that's come across with this squad is they've kept their feet on the floor, nobody's getting too excited and I think that's the right approach".

While the Three Lions as a collective have been fantastic in Russian Federation under Gareth Southgate so far, Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli has arguably not shown his best form at the World Cup, and it's something that hasn't gone unnoticed by the player himself. "Nobody wants to miss the birth of their child, so to see that and then to get back and be involved in such a fantastic game and go through to the semifinals is unbelievable. You want to forget about it and lock yourself away", Alli said.

Russia's first-ever FIFA World Cup will come to an end on Sunday, with the final set to be held at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium. We'll have a tough time, but we'll try to become hard opponents for England.
