Jude Bellingham reveals he has a “dawg” in him ahead of England’s World Cup quarter-final. The 19-year-old has played a key role in Gareth Southgate’s side’s progression to the quarter finals.
England face France on Saturday in the quarter-finals in Doha.
“I think when you’ve got the dawg, you’re just born with it, really,” Bellingham said.
“The way I was raised in football, you had to have that dawg in you a little bit and I go into the games knowing every game’s a war and you’ve got to be up for it. I think that’s something I have”.
“There was a foul in the Senegal game that I didn’t think was a foul, I kind of held onto the ball and moved up, me and the lad were both just staring at each other for a minute straight and I just think, ‘don’t be the one that loses’ “.
“I feel like off the pitch, I’m a nice guy but when I get onto the pitch, something kind of takes over me, to be honest, I feel like you’ve got no friends out there except the ones wearing the same kit”.
“Anyone who is not wearing that, it’s kind of, no beef… but there is something that’s a little bit personal.”
