Ashley Young has urged Dele Alli not to take the edge out of his game, despite a flashpoint occurring between the two spiky England internationals during the Premier League season.

England's players have been training together at St George's Park over the past week, with their first pre-World Cup friendly coming against Nigeria on Saturday evening.

"I think it's just the hunger and desire and passion I've got for the game", said Young.

He has featured in his country's past eight fixtures under Southgate, who has chosen the third-youngest squad England have sent to a World Cup.

"He's definitely been fantastic for us at United and he's definitely going to be a major player for us at the World Cup".

"Whether it's going to happen, whether you are on the pitch, I'm not sure how you react to it", he said.

"Wherever the manager calls upon me to play I go and give 100% for the England shirt and to do as well as I can".
