What Dele Alli did on the bench to annoy Gareth Southgate during England’s friendly against Netherlands


Gareth Southgate was left annoyed by what Dele Alli did on the bench during England’s recent friendly against Netherlands, it has been revealed.

The Spurs star was dropped for the clash in Amsterdam with Jesse Lingard and Raheem Sterling preferred behind Marcus Rashford.

According to The Times, The Three Lions management team were unhappy with his behaviour while on the subs bench during the 1-0 win.

Apparently, those close to the 21-year-old noted that he was “giggling and messing around” as opposed to watching the fixture.

Alli came off the bench on 68 minutes but didn’t add much to the game.

“We wanted to look at Raheem again in that position and he’s been excellent in the two games.

“I have a problem because I have [Marcus] Rashford, Sterling, Lingard, [Harry] Kane, Oxlade-Chamberlain and [Jamie] Vardy, so there’s a huge choice and I have to make those choices. But Dele is well in the frame.”

It is understood that Southgate has spoken to Dele Alli about showing more maturity.
