Roy Hodgson has praised Dele Alli's performance against France.

England manager Roy Hodgson has hailed Dele Alli's performance for the Three Lions in their 2-0 win over France at Wembley Stadium, as quoted by London 24.

England saw off France in convincing fashion at Wembley, as goals from Alli and Wayne Rooney gave Hodgson a pleasing victory just days after losing 2-0 to Spain.

Rooney's second half volley was a particular highlight, but it was Spurs star Alli who stole the headlines with a stunning performance.

The 19-year-old opened the scoring with a sensational long-range strike past his Tottenham team-mate Hugo Lloris, and ran the game in the heart of midfield alongside Eric Dier.

Alli's first England start has capped off an outstanding start to life in the Premier League with Spurs, despite many believing that the former MK Dons ace hasn't done enough to play for England yet.

However, manager Hodgson has raved about Alli's display against France, stating that he was 'top class' from the first minute to the 88th where he was replaced by Phil Jones.

Hodgson's quotes, as noted by London 24, gave an amazing insight in to what the England boss really thinks of Tottenham's latest teen sensation - and these words should fill Spurs fans with joy.

"It was as close to a faultless performance as you can get," said Hodgson. "I have got to say I didn’t at any moment in the game think he was anything other than top class. It is amazing at that age to have no experience apart from a few late substitute appearances and do what he did tonight. It was quite outstanding. He will get a lot of praise and he certainly deserves it," he added.
