Former Arsenal and Leicester City striker Alan Smith has said on Twitter that he is jealous of Tottenham Hotspur and England international midfielder Dele Alli.

Smith has said that he is jealous that Alli has made more appearances for the England national football team that he could in his entire career.

The 56-year-old, who starred first for Leicester and then for Arsenal during his club football career, made 13 appearances for England, scoring two goals in the process.

 

Alli is only 22 years of age, but the Tottenham midfielder has already played 33 times for the Three Lions, scoring three goals in the process.

Smith has said on Twitter that he wishes that he won more caps for England than he did.
