England midfielder Dele Alli insists he has no concerns about losing his cool at the World Cup.

The Tottenham playmaker has become a target as opposition players attempt to take advantage of the young star's fiery streak.

But Alli, who claims he has never seen footage of David Beckham's red card against Argentina at the 1998 World Cup, expects his football to do the talking in Russia. "I am a big believer that you have to make mistakes to learn from them," the 22-year-old said.

"And, yeah, I feel I learned from the things I've done before, but it's not -something I worry about at all.

"I haven't seen the incident with Beckham but, you know, I feel I've got everything under control.
