Danny Rose Says He's Now Open To Allowing Family Visit Him During The World Cup
England international Danny Rose says that he's now open to allowing his family visit him in Russia during the World Cup.
In an extraordinary interview before the World Cup, the Spurs defender said he would not allow his family watch him play in Russia, because of the racism he feels is rife in the country.
Despite the press anticipating a violent and controversial World Cup in Russia, nothing has come to pass so far at the tournament, leaving Rose to be more open about having his close-ones take the trip to Russia.
To IRNJ via RT, he said: "I just want to get in the team and then, after that, I'd be open [to them coming to Russia]."
"I'd definitely be open now to having my family out here, so let's just hope we win [against Belgium] on Thursday [England lost 1-0] and then we beat whoever we play in the next round, and we'll see."
Danny Rose has shown just how much not getting regular first team action affects your game. Let this (and other countless examples) serve as a warning for young players who chase the big move too soon.

Striking comments from #thfc Danny Rose, who says he wouldn't recommend to anyone's children that they become a professional footballer. Says there are much greater difficulties in the game that people know nothing about. Unexpected from an #england player at the World Cup.

Rose's reluctance to have family visit him caused his father great upset, but the Premier League star seems to coping without his family's physical presence.
England earned a spot in the knockout stages of the World Cup thanks to wins over Tunisia and Panama, but they couldn't beat Belgium to top the group.
We hope the World Cup 2018 continues bringing us brilliant games and the supporters and citizens over in Russia remain amicable.
