Dele Alli will compete in the Games Without Borders tournament, where he will be hoping to win the $10m prize pool which will be donated to charities fighting COVID-19.
The Tottenham star makes his first public appearance on Thursday after suffering a break-in at his home last week.
Alli is set to play the popular video game Fortnite with his teammate Kyle Walker-Peters, who is currently on loan at Southampton.
A number of fans decided to focus their attention on his new look in the replies however, with many pointing out the midfielder’s new beard and moustache combination.
Footballers will take on some of the world’s biggest gamers in the esports series, with all the proceeds going to the victors’ designated COVID-19 treatment charity of their choice.
This competition will no doubt prove to be a welcome distraction for the 24-year-old from recent events.
The England international was shockingly held at knifepoint during a burglary earlier this week, sustaining some minor injuries as a result, but it appears these have cleared up ahead of the livestream.
Understandably, supporters tuning into the event will be hoping Alli can demonstrate his skills on the sticks, as well as on the pitch, with the Premier League set to resume next month.
Tottenham fans, make sure to check out the Games Without Borders tournament tonight!
