Arsenal Legend Criticises England's Reliance On 'Trophyless' Spurs Players

Arsenal Legend Criticises England's Reliance On 'Trophyless' Spurs Players

Alli served a one-match ban for making an obscene gesture during England's qualifier against Slovakia previous year. Referees will have the power to take action at half-time, for example, if they are made aware of an incident from the opening 45 minutes.

When asked if he would turn down a move to one of Europe's biggest clubs, Alli told Evening Standard Magazine: "I'd never say never to anything. But if you look at my record, I have definitely learned from my mistakes", the 22-year-old said, according to the Sun.

"I have still got a few years left on my contract".

"I've been working hard and you go through a lot of things during the season - ups and downs, physically, and on the field you don't always perform to your full potential - but it's important that I come back hungry and make the starting XI if he has a decision to make".

Adams, who is also a former England captain, said he is anxious about the frame of mind of the Tottenham players, as he feels they don't know how to win and lack the psychology that makes all the difference in winning a match.

Carlos tipped Tottenham midfielder Alli to play a major part in any success Gareth Southgate's side have. "I want to play with passion and I want to play with hunger in every game I play".

Tottenham have five players in England's 23-man squad travelling to Russia - Harry Kane, who has been named captain, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose.

But Southgate's side begin their campaign against Tunisia on June 18 before switching attentions to Panama and then Belgium. "For my whole time at Milton Keynes I was playing there and it wasn't really until I signed for Tottenham that I started playing in the number 10 role, a bit higher up the pitch, so it's not something I'm new to".
