Former Tottenham Hotspur man Graham Roberts believes that England could be ready to mount a challenge for the Euro 2016 title, if they play Dele Alli in Eric Dier in midfield.
Roberts feels that although Alli and Dier are inexperienced, they are very talented players, and he has backed them for starting places in France.
Roberts also wants Everton midfielder Ross Barkley to be placed in Roy Hodgson’s starting line-up.
@GaryLineker I think could be ready Gary for France if we have Barkley Ali Dier all available in midfield strong— Graham Roberts (@GrahamRoberts4) November 17, 2015
Dier, Alli and Barkley all started in midfield for England yesterday evening, as the Three Lions beat France 2-0 at Wembley.
Alli’s performance in the match grabbed headlines, as he netted a goal and looked comfortable throughout, but he was supported well be Dier and Barkley.
Dier’s performance grabbed Roberts’ attention right from the start, with the former Tottenham midfielder posting a series of tweets about the 21-year-old.
Dier’s and Alli’s performance enhanced their burgeoning reputations even further, with the pair earning plaudits for their performances for club and country this season.
