Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli could miss out on the upcoming England squad, according to the Daily Mail.
The report claims that Alli is fit and available for selection for the upcoming games against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria.
However, he may not be selected by Gareth Southgate. Alli missed England’s last squad because of injury trouble but did feature in the Nations League doubleheader against the Netherlands and Switzerland back in June.
But Alli has not played in a Tottenham league win since April and had hamstring trouble again at the start of this season.
He struggled to have any impact as Tottenham lost 7-2 to Bayern Munich in the Champions League this week. The report claims that ‘there are concerns over Alli’s sharpness’ and it may cost the Tottenham man an international recall.
At the moment, based on form, Alli does not deserve an England call-up.
The likes of James Maddison, Mason Mount, Ross Barkley, and even Jack Grealish will consider themselves to be performing better than the Tottenham player at present.
Not being called up could be a blessing in disguise. Alli could work on his fitness at Hotspur Way and find his way back into his best shape.
But it will be a sign of just how poor Alli’s form has been in recent times as he goes from squad shoo-in to being left behind.
