Sam Trickett is in Russia at the moment to watch England in the World Cup, as any sharp eyed fans watching the sky coverage would have spotted. With just a few hours to until the round of 16 match between England and Columbia, Trickett was talking to Sky News journalists about how hard it was to find an England fan to take his spare ticket. Presumably because they’ve all already bought theirs.


Trickett, whose poker career owes a great deal to a cruciate ligament injury that stymied his professional football hopes, is skipping the World Series of Poker to support his nation in its best run at the World Cup since 2006.
