Dele Alli has arrived.
The 19-year old scored his first goal for England on a top-class finish against France. The rocket might have taken a deflection off Koscielny, but sailed out of the reach of Tottenham teammate Hugo Lloris.
Alli signed with Tottenham in February, after starting his career at MK Dons. He scored his first EPL goal in August against Leicester. He has scored twice in ten total appearances for Spurs this season. This is just Alli’s third appearance with England. He made his debut October 9 against Estonia.
Alli was called for this round of friendlies alongside fellow Spurs youngster Eric Dier. The pair, who combined are younger than Ryan Giggs, could make for a promising future for England. The Lions are certainly on the upswing, as their loss to Spain last week was their first since their 2014 World Cup exit. The team went unbeaten through ten games of EURO 2016 qualification.
Wayne Rooney scored soon after, making the score 2-0 in an emotional friendly at Wembley.
Alli was subbed off on the 88th minute for Phil Jones.
