Dele Alli inspires England U21s skipper

11 November 2015, 14:09

London - England U21s skipper James Ward-Prowse has admitted that he has been inspired by the promotion of Tottenham Hotspur's Anglo–Nigerian midfielder Dele Alli to the Three Lions squad.

The 19-year-old debuted for the England Under-21s in September against USA in Preston before earning his first England call - up for Euro qualifiers against Estonia and Lithuania the following month.

England boss Roy Hodgson has picked Alli in his roster for the upcoming international friendlies against Spain and France, alongside teammate Eric Dier.

''They’ve been tremendous for Tottenham, to hold their place and perform the way they have for a club like Spurs is great,'' he told thefa.com

''And Dele showed in the time he was here with us the qualities that he has, so I’m excited to see how they do in these next two games.

"He’s a young, talented player and to be given the chance to play in the Premier League is great and you can see in the early stages of his career that he’s shown great quality and I’m sure he’ll be around for a long time.''

Alli has suited up 16 times for Tottenham Hotspur across all competitions since he returned to the club this summer after spending the second half of last season on loan at MK Dons.
