The talisman has netted three World Cup goals and has been causing a stir leaving fans in both awe and confusion over his unusual fashion.

Saka has been spotted wearing ‘torn’ socks; literally socks littered with multiple ‘holes’ here and there.

He featured in the socks in England's World Cup opener against Iran and against the USA.

Well, the socks are not a lucky charm but he rather cuts holes in his socks allegedly to avoid injury to his bulging calves during the match.

The socks reportedly allow the tension in the legs to be released thus effectively preventing them from picking up muscle problems and cramp.

Kyle Walker has also adopted the style.
