Although England didn’t take home a trophy from the 2022 FIFA World Cup, a couple of the team’s players left Qatar with a new furry friend.

Manchester City’s Kyle Walker 그리고 John Stones — who also played for England during the World Cup — adopted a stray tabby cat named Dave after befriending the feline at their World Cup training base in Al Wakrah, ESPN에 따르면. The adoption news broke following England’s 2-1 loss against France at Saturday’s World Cup quarterfinal match.

He was just there one day, so we’ve just adopted him, me and Stonesy,” 보행자, 32, told the Football Association’s official media channel, ESPN에 따르면. “Dave is welcome to the tableSome people really don’t like the cat, 하지만 나는 그를 사랑한다.”

First day we got thereDave pops out. Every night he sat there waiting for his food,” added Stones, 28, who came up with Dave’s name.

하지만 수호자 reported that Walker originally planned to adopt Dave if England was triumphant at the World Cup, they grew too attached and decided to bring the pet home anyway.

Dave will spend four months in quarantine before moving into his forever home with the Team England footballers.

They’re still undecided as who’s having him, but he’s going back,” a woman said in a video of Dave being transported to his quarantine home.

Walker previously told reporters that Dave was involved in a fight with another cat ahead of the team’s final match with France, 수호자 보고. “Dave’s fine, thank you for asking,” 그는 말했다.
