Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli might only be 22 years of age but he is already an experienced player at the top level.
Alli has been competing at the top end of the Premier League as well as in the Champions League with Spurs and has been involved with the England set up for over 5 years.
The former MK Dons player is one of the players who has been central to Gareth Southgate’s revolution as the former England defender has built a team that is technically excellent and tactically astute.
The Spurs man recently got involved in a celebrations masterclass alongside Callum Wilson, Nikita Parris, and Ellen White as part of Head & Shoulders’ promotional campaign.

Speaking at the event, Alli said that the Three Lions squad have one aim – to be the best team in the world.
The 22-year-old said that the players believe that they have the talent to do it, and will try to get started down that path by winning the Nations League.
Speaking to the Mirror, Alli said, “We want to be the No.1 team in the world and to do that you have to be at it in every game and when you come away you have to prove yourself every time.
“We definitely believe we can be the best in the world. Obviously everyone will have their opinions but the work we’ve been putting in is to achieve that.
“We know there’s a long way to go, a lot of work to be done but we feel we are definitely heading in the right direction.
“The Nations League tournament has had some unbelievable teams in it. Look at our Group (Spain and Croatia) and see how tough it was. It’s exciting for us to try to win another trophy.
“We’re looking forward to it, prepare properly, focus on the Euro 2020 games first and then obviously when the time comes prepare as well as we can for the Nations League.
“But we’ve proved so far since Gareth [Southgate] came in that we can beat the top sides and everyone can see the direction we’re heading in which is exciting. We had a great World Cup but it was important to show with the results after that it was not just a one-off.
“We are a good team, I think we’ve shown that and we have beaten some good teams. We need to keep challenging ourselves. We can’t stop now and I think the gaffer definitely won’t let that happen.”
