Danny Rose's Socks Were The Big Talking Point During First Half Of England-Belgium Third Place Play-Off

You know you're watching a third place play-off when you pay close attention to the socks Danny Rose is wearing, but then again they are a bit weird.

The England left-back had huge visible holes cut into the back of his socks during the first half of the game against Belgium and it confused a whole lot of people on social media.

Rose had the holes on display in the semi-final defeat to Croatia on Wednesday when he came on as a sub but they were more frequent and much larger today.

However, it turns out there's actually a pretty good reason for him doing so as back in April, The Mirror shed some light on why Rose's England colleague Kyle Walker has been doing the same thing for quite some time.

it seems as though a kitman, or even Rose himself, has made the incisions on the back of his socks in an attempt to relieve tension and prevent pain in his lower leg muscles.

These days, the combination of tight socks and bulging calf muscles run the risk of injury - and cutting holes is the common solution many players are choosing to help prevent it.
