Tottenham youngster Dele Alli reacts to first Tottenham goal; Harry Kane sends him message

Dele Alli reacted on Twitter after scoring his first goal for Tottenham.

It was a day of individual jubilation for Tottenham Hotspur youngster Dele Alli, who opened the scoring with his first ever goal for the club in a 1-1 draw at Leicester City. However, the midfielder was understandably left frustrated by his side’s failure to hold on for three points.

The 19-year-old, who was signed from MK Dons in January but only joined up with the first-team squad in the summer, opened the scoring at the King Power Stadium before Riyad Mahrez hit back less than two minutes later to claim a point for the Foxes.

Meanwhile, Harry Kane sent a message offering his congratulations to his Spurs team-mate. The club’s top scorer of last season had very few chances on the day but he will undoubtedly be delighted to see Alli following in his footsteps - ahead of what could prove to be a breakthrough campaign.

Spurs are left still seeking their first win of the season, having lost their opening fixture 1-0 away to Manchester United, before letting a 2-0 lead slip against Stoke City last weekend as the game finished in a 2-2 draw.
