Alli is adamant on representing England in the 2026 World Cup

Posted by

Midfielder Dele Alli of Everton has spoken publicly about his desire to represent England at the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

While appearing on Monday Night Football, Alli made the statement, despite not having played in a game this season.

The veteran, who was 28 years old when he played for England at Euro 2016, went on to compete in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

But he hasn’t played a single game for his country since his 37th appearance, which was five years ago.

Injuries, particularly groin and hip issues, have hindered Alli’s performance.

However, he is determined to represent his nation at the upcoming World Cup, which will be held in the US, Canada, and Mexico.

To be honest, I have a hard time even watching football. Observing things unfold over the last eight months has been challenging for me.

I have a daily reminder on my phone that says “World Cup 2026” at 11 o’clock. You know, you can put reminders on your phone.

At the moment, it is my goal. Some may say, “he hasn’t played in a year,” but that’s okay with me because I’m aware of my current skill level.

At this moment, nothing matters to me but the World Cup. According to Alli, “my mind is just about taking it day by day, making sure my injury heals and that I’m in the best possible condition after the summer” because she is wounded and contracted to Everton.
