  • Roberto Carlos picks out the one English player with the swagger of a Brazilian

"Football will always be the main focus for me, but I think it's great we get these opportunities not only for ourselves but to help other people and I'm honoured to have this opening where I can try out something different".

Alli served a one-match ban for making an obscene gesture during England's qualifier against Slovakia past year.

But the midfielder, who despite his reputation has only ever been sent off once in three seasons for Spurs (during a Europa League tie), insists he has learned from his mistakes. "But if you look at my record, I have definitely learned from my mistakes".

When asked if he would turn down a move to one of Europe's biggest clubs, Alli told Evening Standard Magazine: "I'd never say never to anything".

"I have still got a few years left on my contract". You have to stay concentrated and you can't do stupid things - and if you do, you have to learn from your mistakes. ". I think with Gareth in charge and with the support network England now have, we'll leave Russian Federation proud of what we've done and the players will go back to their clubs as better human beings".

Avengers: Infinity War passes $2 billion at box office
Since being released in late April, the superhero film has broken multiple box office records. Its $257.7 million domestic opening weekend set a new record.


Alli is one of the best young midfielders in the world and is a very attack-minded player.

England open their World Cup campaign against Tunisia on June 18, prior to meetings with Panama and Belgium.

"I wasn't concerned as such", said Alli, who featured in all four games at Euro 2016 under Roy Hodgson.

England's squad boasts Tottenham players such as captain Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Danny Rose, Eric Dier and Kieran Trippier, but Adams thinks that their inability to win a trophy at club level means they do not possess a winning mentality. It wasn't really until I signed for Tottenham that I started playing in the No. 10 role, a bit higher up the pitch.
