Tyrone Mings: England defender had to visit a psychologist

Tyrone Mings: England

England defender Tyrone Mings revealed that he had to visit a psychologist after his mental health deteriorated during England’s campaign at Euro 2020. Mings was a stand-in for Harry Kane for the first two games of the tournament. He believes the pressure in the build-up of the tournament was the main reason. A number of sources were questioning his credentials as he had no tournament experience or any experience in Europe. Mings was one of the best players on the pitch against Croatia.

“I did have a tough time in the lead-up to the opening game against Croatia,” England defender Tyrone Mings said. “I think I’m a lot more hardened to outside influences now, but my mental health did plummet. And I have no shame in admitting that because there were so many unknowns about me going to that game.”

“I was probably the only name on the teamsheet that people thought, ‘Not sure about him’. And that was something I had to overcome.” he added. “When 90-95 percent of your country are having doubts over you, it’s very difficult to stop this intruding on your own thoughts. So I did a lot of work on that with my psychologist. I was given a lot of coping mechanisms – whether it was breathing, meditation, or just learning how to bring yourself into the present moment. To stop letting your subconscious take over. It was hard. I didn’t really sleep very well before that first game.”
