Cristian Romero reveals World Cup warning he gave Eric Dier and Harry Kane

Cristian Romero has revealed he warned his English teammates at Tottenham he’d hit them with everything he’s got if they faced each other at the World Cup.

Romero is still in the World Cup with Argentina, as are Spurs colleagues Eric Dier and Harry Kane with England.

The two nations are on opposite sides of the draw but could yet face off in the final, during which Romero would be tasked with dealing with Kane.

The players have spoken about the prospect of going head-to-head in Qatar, and Romero warned them he wouldn’t hold anything back.

“I would be very sorry for him if I came up against him. I would hit him with a lot,” the defender told

“Both [Kane] and Dier, I have told them, if I face you, I am sorry for you, but if we must hit each other, it’s going to be like that.

“When he is serving for England and I am serving for Argentina, I don’t have any teammates, no friends, nothing.

“He is for his team and I am for mine. So, unfortunately, I would not be friends in that match. My objective and the other 10 who are on the field are the same to kill the rival opponent, in a good way, to die for our shirt.”

There’s a long way to go before that potential meeting, with Argentina having to get past the Netherlands and most likely Brazil while England will face France before a potential clash with Portugal.
