England midfielder Dele Alli has said he is not worried about the possibility of losing his temper if opposition players attempt to provoke him at the World Cup.

The Tottenham Hotspur player, whose temperament has been questioned in the past, said he felt he had “got everything under control.”

Speaking after the 2-1 friendly win over Nigeria at Wembley on Saturday, the 22-year-old said: “I am a big believer that you have to make mistakes to learn from them.

“And, yeah, I feel I learned from the things I’ve done before, but it’s not something I worry about at all. I feel I’ve got everything under control.

“Obviously, I’ve done some things before and people seem to think that will be a problem — but it’s not.”
