Glenn Hoddle has explained in The Daily Mail how Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli can improve his game for England.

Alli enjoyed a hugely successful 2015-16 season for Tottenham and was arguably the best young player in the Premier League.

Much was expected of the 20-year-old midfielder at the ongoing 2016 European Championship in France, but the youngster failed to deliver.

Tottenham legend Hoddle has explained how Alli can improve his game for England, suggesting that he should look at the combination between Aaron Ramsey and Hal Robson-Kanu for Wales.

“When I watch Alli at Spurs he’s coming from deep, coming on to Harry Kane and then in the second phase going past Kane,” Hoddle wrote in The Daily Mail. “For England, he was just making runs past Kane or into holes. But we hadn’t set the ball up, so the run was too early.

“A prime example would be the run Aaron Ramsey made for Wales to set up their second goal against Belgium on Friday. There is a little movement from Hal Robson-Kanu, which takes Toby Alderweireld away and opens up space; Gareth Bales sees it, Ramsey senses it and makes a great run which allows Bale to play him in and open Belgium up.

“That’s the type of run Alli makes for Spurs and needs to do for England. He needs to be corrected, if necessary from the bench. Someone has got to identify that and explain it to him and put on drills on the training ground that can help him.”

Alli failed to score a single goal for England at the Euro 2016 finals in France.

In four matches for the Three Lions, the Tottenham midfielder created six chances, had a pass accuracy of 82% and a shot accuracy of 13%, and won five headers, nine dribbles and three tackles.

During the 2015-16 season, Alli scored 10 goals and created 55 chances in 33 Premier League matches for Spurs.

The Tottenham midfielder had a pass accuracy of 76% and a shot accuracy of 60%, and won 36 headers, 30 dribbles and 53 tackles.
