Tyson Fury immediately knew which England player he wanted to go on a night out with

Tyson Fury has revealed the England footballer he'd most like to go on a night out with while they're on World Cup duty in Qatar.

The WBC heavyweight champion returns to action on Saturday night, when he'll defend his title against Derek Chisora at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Fury is the favourite to come out on top in the trilogy bout. In the build-up to the fight, he claimed he would fly straight to Qatar to get involved with Three Lions supporters in the country.

Gareth Southgate's side topped Group B with seven points, one of only three teams to reach that tally. England are next in action against Africa Cup of Nations holders Senegal in the last 16 on Sunday evening.

Fury was asked which of the Three Lions' 26-man squad he'd like to share a pint with if he had the opportunity.

The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' named first-choice goalkeeper Jordan Pickford as his ideal drinking partner.

He told The Sun: "Jordan Pickford. He seems like a laugh to go on a drink with."

Pickford famously has 'Get the rave on' stitched on the inside of his boots. The 28-year-old also hosted a huge party following last summer's European Championship, which went viral on social media.

Most England supporters are optimistic about defeating Senegal, despite Aliou Cisse's men winning AFCON back in February.

Fury is among those, joking he's prepared to 'get messy' as soon as possible. He's got previous, having bought rounds up to £1000 during Euro 2016 for fellow fans.

Despite an alcohol ban inside the eight stadiums used for World Cup matches, Fury believes he can sneak some in if required.

He continued: "I’m 100 per cent going to get messy with the fans. I’m known for that.

"I’m going to sneak a few cases into my suitcase. They can have anything they want — whatever gets them going. Think of Euro 2016 when I went to Nice and bought 200 fans Jägerbombs."

Fury weighed in slightly heavier than Chisora on Friday, 24 hours before their showdown.

The Morecambe native weighed 19st 2lbs, while Chisora came in at 18st 8lbs.
