Photo: Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane looks after Dele Alli in England training

The striker said he would keep an eye on the teenager and he certainly did that.

The senior England football team have been hard at work at a miserable looking St George's Park this morning, as Roy Hodgson and co put them through their paces for the upcoming fixtures with Estonia and Lithuania.

There was of course hope of seeing two new faces in action, and there was. Dele Alli of Tottenham Hotspur was in action. Danny Ings, the fellow first time call-up,was injured but 17-year-old Everton talent Tom Davies was drafted from the England under-17s to make the numbers - what an experience for him.

Alli was of course the focus of attention.

The Tottenham Hotspur youngster was a surprise call-up from Hodgson. Just a few months ago he was playing in League Two with MK Dons. However his impressive form for Tottenham Hotspur this season has seen him fast-tracked to the senior fold.

Much has been made of how me might struggle to deal with the pressure of such a call-up, but he has plenty of Tottenham team-mates to keep him settled - including Harry Kane.

The striker was quoted by The Guardian last week as stating:

“Everyone is so welcoming. No one will give Dele a hard time. We will work hard. You always wonder what it is like but as soon as you settle – and he knows St George’s Park from the Under-21s – it will be fine. It’s just a step up in level and training.

“I am sure we will have a little chat about it. I will probably spend most of my time with him there because we are Spurs and I want to look after him, make sure he settles in all right. That is what it is about.”

Judging by the pictures from England training today it certainly seems as though Kane was good on his word. He was often seen beside Alli making sure he was comfortable in surroundings that could prove daunting for a teenager.

Alli certainly seemed confident, later going on to give his other team-mate Kyle Walker a difficult time on the training pitch.

Here is hoping the call-up is not to soon for Alli and he can prove a real star for the England national team.
