As England were playing Belgium in the battle for third place at the World Cup this afternoon, fans were left baffled on social media by the look of Danny Rose’s socks.
Both sides were beaten in the semi-finals this week and made several changes for the play-off in Saint Petersburg. But it was the Red Devils who came out deserved winners thanks to goals from Thomas Meunier and Eden Hazard.
Most of the talk however was on defender Danny Rose who had numerous holes in his socks as he took to the pitch and no one could find an explanation that could adequately fit the situation.

But it turns out there is a genuine reason behind his decision and several Premier League stars did the same.
It has been said that Kyle Walker did the same while playing for Manchester City.
West Ham defender Arthur Masuaku was also photographed with three large holes cut into the back of both his socks.
Apparently, the reason players have started doing this is because the socks are too tight and in order to release the tension around the lower legs, to prevent pain in the latter stages of a game, players have been cutting holes in their socks.
