Tottenham Hotspur's 20-year-old sensation Dele Alli has compared the atmosphere and philosophies of his club to the setup he is currently involved in with the national team, in an exclusive interview with Match of the Day magazine.
England are currently preparing for the start of Euro 2016 where they will take on Russia on June 11, and Alli is expected to play a pivotal role in their chances of success at the tournament. The Spurs youngster spoke to the magazine and drew parallels with the setups of his club and country.
"The mood is great," Alli said. "It's the same sort of atmosphere at Spurs -- there are a lot of youngsters and everyone gets on well. We've got the same sort of philosophy and we're looking to do the right things, which is important for the team."
The 23-man England squad chosen by Roy Hodgson for the European Championships in France is the youngest group to be picked since the 1958 World Cup. Alli certainly has a point when comparing the two groups in the youth department - Spurs had the youngest average age in the Premier League last season.
The former MK Dons prodigy also went on to say how important it is for England to focus on one game at a time, much like his club side did during their Premier League campaign last season.
"We've got to be right mentally -- to stay focused and not get carried away if results go our way," he said. "We've got to be focused and, like this season at Spurs, take each game as it comes and not look too far ahead."
Alli will be hoping England can go that little bit further than Spurs and win their first major trophy since 1966.
