Spurs starlet Dele Alli leaves stateside with reputation intact

30 July 2015, 16:05

London - Anglo-Nigerian Dele Alli left the Dick’s Sporting Goods Park pitch with his head held high despite Tottenham Hotspur losing 2-1 to MLS All-Stars in one of the showpiece games in the MLS calendar.

Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino gave the England youth international a run-out immediately after the intermission and his performance was lively in official match reports.

On 59 minutes, Dele Alli played Harry Kane through but he couldn't get past a second defender after evading a challenge.

And in the 71st minute, the midfielder raced onto Roses's ball down the left flank but Chad Marshall saw the danger and immediately put out for a corner.

''Great feeling wearing that shirt! Been a great experience out here in the U.S 💙✌️ #COYS,'' Dele Alli posted on Twitter.

Meanwhile, youngster Josh Onomah had arguably the best opportunity to restore parity for Spurs after he was set up by Kane 18 minutes from time, only for his shot to be saved by goalkeeper David Ousted.

All the goals came in the first half, with Kaka and David Villa scoring for MLS All–Stars, while Kane netted in the 36th minute for the London team.
