Dele Alli impressed for Tottenham against Real Madrid in the Audi Cup.
Dele Alli wowed Tottenham fans with an accomplished performance in a pre-season friendly against Real Madrid.
The England under-19 international has made the step up from playing League One football with MK Dons to the Premier League side, and did not look out of place in the match against the 2014 Champions League winners.
Alli even capped off his performance with a nutmeg of former Spurs midfield maestro Luka Modric, illustrating his confidence.
The midfielder's name was even trending on Twitter as fans responded to his performance, impressed despite the side's defeat to the La Liga side, which featured a goal from former winger Gareth Bale.
Any suggestion Alli could be sent out on loan this season appears to have disappeared, with the youngster handed a prominent role in pre-season by head coach Mauricio Pochettino.
Spurs have sold midfielders Stambouli, Paulinho and Capoue this summer, and with Ryan Mason injured, Alli could be in line for a start in the PRemier League opener against Manchester United this weekend.
His performance against Madrid suggested he will have no problems with the challenge, and the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger should be on guard.
Here's a look at how Spurs fans reacted to Alli's performance...
