England defender Danny Rose says he's no longer opposed to the idea of his family traveling to Russia to support him and his teammates at the World Cup.
In the run-up to Russia, Rose said that he did not want his family to follow him to the World Cup due to his concern about potential racial abuse.
He's changed his mind about that now - but would only consider getting his family out should the Three Lions reach the quarter-finals.
"I’d definitely be open now to having my family out here," said the Tottenham defender, speaking to UK radio station TalkSport.
"Let’s just hope we win against Belgium on Thursday, and then we beat whoever we play in the next round, and we’ll see," he added.
The 27-year-old, who has been capped for England 19 times, added that his teammates have had the opportunity to meet their families on days off from training, which has left him in the lurch a bit.
Meanwhile, it was reported yesterday that Australia goalkeeper Mat Ryan paid for 27 family members to fly out to Russia to support the Socceroos.
However, Rose insists his time away isn't affecting him mentally.
"There’s a few of us here without families here, so we’ve not had much to do, and it’s been a bit difficult," he said.
"But I’ve got three weeks just to dedicate my life to England - I'm comfortable in not having my family here. I’m fine, I’m not on the verge of breaking down or anything," Rose said.
England will face Belgium in Kaliningrad on Thursday in a match that will decide which team will top Group G.
