Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli has been slated by England fans on Twitter.
Alli only came off the substitutes’ bench for England late on against the Netherlands, yet the Tottenham man still came in for really heavy criticism.
England were beaten 3-1 by the Dutch last night, and Alli’s failure to make an impact off the bench saw the midfielder heavily criticised on social media.

What has happened with Dele Alli, or was he just overrated to begin with? Such a nothing player.— FK (@fkhanage) June 6, 2019
Dele Alli has no pace, isn’t the best on the ball and doesn’t create/score enough. What does he offer?— BoroFPL (@BoroFPL) June 6, 2019
Dele Alli is absolute trash in an England top.— George House (@George_House_) June 6, 2019
Dele Alli will continue to be one of the most overrated players in world football— - (@YanitedDave) June 6, 2019
Dele Alli is one of the worst England players I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen some shite. Holland were always going to win they’re just better than us, it was obvious before it and it’s even more obvious now— Niall Hoult (@niallhoult180) June 6, 2019
Alli has struggled at Tottenham of late, after a stop-start season.
The goalscoring midfielder actually began the campaign fairly well, but an injury curtailed his progress, and it seems like he never really recovered his best form after that.
A break could serve the Tottenham man well now, before the start of next season.
England scored their goal against Holland through Marcus Rashford from the penalty spot, but were undone by their own errors in extra time.
