Dele Alli admits scoring England goal v Tottenham Hotspur team-mate Hugo Lloris made it sweeter

Alli scored in his last outing for England, past the Tottenham captain.

Dele Alli is all set to feature for England again in the coming days, hoping to continue his good start to his international career.

Alli scored in his last England outing, firing a wonderful long range strike against France back in November.

It was a fantastic strike from the teenager, who won the ball in midfield with a full-blooded challenge before dusting himself off, collecting the ball and rifling a strike into the back of the French net.

Ahead of England’s upcoming games with Germany and the Netherlands the Tottenham player has been looking back at the goal.

Speaking to FATV the Spurs midfielder made it clear that what made the goal even more special was the fact it came against a Tottenham Hotspur team-mate:

“It was a 50-50 so I wanted to win it. When I went into the tackle I weren’t thinking about scoring at the time.

“Then the space just opened up and when I got the ball there was only one thing I was going to do really with all that space. I think it made it feel a little bit sweeter scoring past Hugo (Lloris) as well.

“It’s weird watching it back again, it brings back all the emotions.”

No doubt finishing from range against his club captain would have been a pleasing moment for Alli.

His upcoming fixture however poses a more daunting task between the sticks – as England take on Germany and the might of their goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

While it might not beat grabbing a goal against his Spurs buddy Lloris, have no doubt that Alli scoring v Neuer would rank just as highly.
