Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour has picked out two players who he feels came away from England's Euro 2016 campaign with credit.

Parlour named Tottenham duo Eric Dier and Kyle Walker as the only two who enhanced their reputations, and admitted he was disappointed in Dele Alli, although does not pin the blame on the player himself.

Speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on Talksport on Monday (11/7), he responded when asked if any England players can hold their heads high.

He said: "Walker may be. he looked pretty good despite the error against Iceland. He was excellent against Wales.

"Dier may be, he scored really good free kick. A lot more players had poor tournaments than had big tournaments.

"Dele Alli I was looking forward to seeing him, he didn't play well, but we didn't get the best out of him."

Along with Harry Kane and Danny Rose, Dier, Alli and Walker made up a quintet of Tottenham players who started the opening game and the last 16 defeat to Iceland.

Parlour went on to add that he was not enamoured with French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris' role in Les Bleus final defeat to Portugal.

He conceded a goal in extra time to Eder from 25 yards out which went on to win the game.

Parlour said: "You can say he wasn't set, he wasn't expecting it. May be he should have done a lot better. But lets give Eder credit."

Lloris' tournament did not deserve to end in the way it did, with the goalkeeper superb throughout the tournament.

Tottenham's stars, along with the Belgian contingent, will have to put their Euro 2016 disappointment behind them, and a return to club football should lift their spirits when they are all back together.
