Spurs loan star Alli hits stunning landmark goal for MK Dons

MK Dons

The talented 19-year-old scored one special goal and made another as he helped his side nail down a playoff spot.

Milton Keynes Dons' Dele Alli scored his 15th goal of the season in their 3-0 win over Fleetwood Town on Tuesday night, with parent club Tottenham surely rubbing their hands in anticipation at the youngster's impending arrival this summer.

The midfielder starred in the match at Highbury Stadium, firstly setting up Chelsea loanee Lewis Baker to open the scoring in the second half, before smashing an astonishing right-footed half volley into the top corner from outside of the box to top off the result after Will Grigg's goal just minutes before.

Alli's wonderstrike was his first since returning from an ankle injury he picked up in February, and was the perfect way to celebrate his nomination for Football League Young Player of the Year.

The 19-year-old is the only player outside of the Championship nominated for the award, and the midfielder is clearly determined to drag his boyhood club MK Dons up into that division before he departs for White Hart Lane in the summer. Such is Alli's importance to his side, the Dons lost 3 of the 7 games he missed, having only lost 6 in the 31 games before that.

Alli is one of the top goalscorers in the division, and second only to striker Will Grigg at the Stadium mk. Tottenham will surely be hoping their young star can bring that goalscoring knack to the Premier Division next season, and with Mauricio Pochettino in charge, young players like Alli will surely be given a chance.

The England Under-19 will join Spurs at the conclusion of the current season, after agreeing a £5 million deal as reported by the BBC on the last day of the winter transfer window.
