Former England international wants Tottenham star to man up

England fell to their third straight defeat last night against Spain, the first time they have done so in 30 years.

After Rashford put the Three Lions 1-0 early in the game, Spain came from behind to win 2-1, despite a controversially disallowed England goal in the dying minutes.

Dele Alli, along with his Tottenham teammates Harry Kane and Kieran Trippier, started the game at Wembley, completing 90 minutes.

Eric Dier and Danny Rose were used as substitutes.

Former England international Stan Collymore has stated that Dele Alli needs to take more responsibility.

Back in October 2017, Collymore actually called for Southgate to make Alli the new England captain, an honour that was later given to Harry Kane.

While he admits that Alli has boundless ability, Collymore thinks that he often plays the ‘nice kid’ rather than stepping up and being ‘the man’.

Does Alli need to be more of a ‘man’? Is he future captain material? Have your say!
