‘England Can Win World Cup’- Dele Alli

England will not be satisfied with a second-place finish at the World Cup and are “going there to win it”, according to Dele Alli.

The squad have 12 days until their opening game against Tunisia on June 18, with a final warm-up match against Costa Rica to come at Elland Road on Thursday.

England have reached the World Cup semi-finals just once since winning the tournament in 1966 but Alli has high hopes for the current squad in Russia.

“We’re going there to win it. We don’t expect anything less and we’ll be disappointed if we finish second,” he said.

“I feel like we have to have that mentality. We don’t want to go there and just be a part of it. We know how good we are as a squad, we know the talent.

“If we get the best out of each other then anything is possible.”
