Speaking to JD Football's YouTube page, France and Crystal Palace midfielder Yohan Cabaye has admitted that he has been impressed by Tottenham Hotspur's Dele Alli and Everton's Ross Barkley this past season.

The young England midfielders enjoyed excellent 2015-16 campaigns on an individual level, with Alli, in particular, emerging as a potential gem of English football after scoring 10 times and setting up 12 to win PFA Young Player of the Year.

The talented duo are set to represent the Three Lions at Euro 2016 this month, and Crystal Palace ace Cabaye singled them out when speaking about England's best players.

"I'm interested about England. For me, England has a good, strong side," he told JD Football's YouTube page.

"And they have Dele Alli and Ross Barkley. They did well this season and deserve to be in the squad so they have a strong team."

If England are to enjoy a strong campaign in France, surely one, if not both, of them will have a big say on that front.

They are unlikely to play together, given that they operate in a number 10 role, but that is not to say both could not have a major impact.

That being said, Alli, after the season he's just had with Tottenham, is expected to start, with the Everton man in reserve.
