The context was different, Argentina had nothing to do with it. However, they were the same England players who, in the context of an interview on the official website, mentioned our country and they caught everyone’s attention. Or rather, a national custom par excellence… Yes, ladies and gentlemen, in the English team they drink mate!

“I’ve been drinking it for a long time. I started in Portugal with some of my Argentinian teammates. It’s an addiction.” confessed Eric Dier, the 28-year-old Tottenham defender. He added: “Matt Doherty and I are drinking together and trying to win Harry Kane over.”

Dier, who in the interview was not only accompanied by Kane, but also showed his pot and explained how to prepare it… “Preparation isn’t easy. Carrying it around is a tricky business, but it’s worth it. It’s like strong green tea. I think that’s the best way to describe it. It has a very district flavor. And it’s strong, ”she said. And she continued:“ Definitely it has the same effect as a coffee, it really wakes you up. I feel sleepy in the morning if I don’t take it.”

How mate fanaticism was born in England

Now, where does this bigotry for greens come from? It was exported, of course, by the same Argentinian players who were based abroad. Indeed, This is the case of Dier, who played for Sporting Lisbon between 2012 and 2014, where he shared the squad with red frames, Emiliano Insua, Fabian Rinaudo Y Purple Valentine.

Moreover, it is not the first time that the dunks are protagonists in the Three Lions and in a World Cup, given that in Russia 2018 they were already present in the concentration and daily life of the team he leads today Gareth Southgate.

Of course, the figure of Harry Kane does not close the idea yet… “It doesn’t work for me. Some things aren’t for everyone. I’m a coffee man, I’m not a man of anything. I’ve tried it, but it’s a little too invasive. It takes a long time.” he confessed, although apparently his partner Dier wants to convince him.
