You have to stay concentrated and you can't do stupid things.

"You don't want to put yourself in a position where you could jeopardise everything and lose the game for your team and your country".

Dele Alli is reportedly in line for a significant pay raise when he agrees to new terms with Tottenham.

Carlos tipped Tottenham midfielder Alli to play a major part in any success Gareth Southgate's side have.

The Tottenham star has courted controversy on the field previously but says that he has cleaned up his act ahead of Russian Federation 2018, where match officials will be able to issue retrospective yellow and red cards due to the introduction of Video Assistant Referees (VAR).

"We all know football is developing, and we had a couple of games [at Tottenham] where VAR played a part, but we have to be open to change, especially in any way it can help the game as far as possible", Alli said. However, Southgate deploys Alli slightly deeper to see the more of the field ahead of him.

Alli said he was looking forward to England's World Cup campaign, which begins against Tunisia on June 18, and was optimistic that they could succeed. "I'll just be myself, the way I always am".

"I'm really anxious about these Tottenham players".

Alli becomes the second high profile Spurs player to sign a new deal at Tottenham after talisman Harry Kane signed a new six year deal on Friday.

"I enjoy playing there, but when you've got the Three Lions on your jersey, then you will play anywhere you're needed".

"We have got a great manager and an ambitious young squad".

Words from 2002 World Cup victor Carlos, and he even thinks England are one of the favourites.

Aside from that, watching the Spain team win it in 2010 stands out as well.
