Daly wants intensity from England in World Cup prep

4th August 2019, 16:51 by Gareth Freeman

Elliot Daly says England have to be at their best in their World Cup warm-up matches and must put any fears of injury to one side.

England face Wales twice, Ireland and Italy in their warm-up matches ahead of the World Cup in Japan.

Daly, 26, says the Red Rose are looking to hit some form before the tournament and he feels it would be counterproductive for England's players to go into those four games with the mindset of trying to avoid injury.

"Everyone at the moment is actually really looking forward to these games to show what we can do and try and get that team cohesion we have been looking at in the last sort of three, four weeks of training together," said Daly, as reported by the Independent.

"If you start thinking about not getting injured, not doing that, then that is when you tend to do get injured, stuff doesn't seem to go as you would wish. But I think the way we are looking at these games is to really improve before the World Cup and put our best foot forward."
