England star Eric Dier reveals injury superstition ahead of tournament






No worries

England midfielder Eric Dier has quashed fears that he is going into the World Cup with a thigh injury after revealing a superstition.

The player is expected to play a fairly big role at the competition and could line up next to Jordan Henderson.

It has been suggested that Southgate could choose to play only one holding midfielder at a time, though that could quickly change.

With Dier probably the second best central midfielder, it wouldn’t be ideal if he was to get injured.

There were fears that the player had suffered a thigh problem when he appeared with his ‘left thigh heavily strapped.’

Fears quashed

Though, despite some worries that it could be injury related, the player quickly denied that.

“It’s just because I’ve had a problem with my leg and it’s cleared up now,” as quoted by the Daily Mirror. 

“But I was wearing the strapping before and I just haven’t stopped wearing it yet. I will eventually!

“I’m fine. It’s just a superstition more than anything.”

That will certainly stop any fears of the player missing out on any games at the World Cup.

With a fully fit squad, Gareth Southgate’s side will certainly be hoping to impress.
