Dele Alli in England squad despite risk of Federation Internationale de Football Association ban

  • Nevertheless Gareth Southgate will name Alli in his squad for the forthcoming internationals

Manchester City midfielder Fabian Delph has been recalled to the England squad as the Three Lions prepare for the final round of World Cup qualifiers against Slovenia and Lithuania early next month.

Hopefully, Alli could only miss the game with Slovenia at Wembley next Thursday when a win will secure the Three Lions' place for Russian Federation 2018.

The Tottenham midfielder's Federation Internationale de Football Association hearing for his controversial one-fingered gesture takes place on Thursday and could result in the England star being handed an worldwide ban.

"We have given our side of events, Dele has given his, we have to see what happens next".

"So we have had a good conversation with the club, but more importantly for me was the conversation I had with him".

"We think he is a player that can provide that and we are looking forward to working with him".


There is no place in the squad for Leicester City striker Vardy, who is reportedly nursing a hip problem.

Manchester City midfielder Delph was the standout name in the 26-man squad, having won the last of his nine caps against Spain in November 2015.

Alli and the FA are sweating on the outcome of that meeting, while Southgate has spoken to the player himself about unwise behaviour he is confident will not be repeated.

Nathaniel Chalobah, Danny Welbeck and Tom Heaton - all members of the last squad - also miss out through injury.

Southampton keeper Fraser Forster joined Delph as the only changes to the squad, with Everton's Michael Keane also included despite concerns over a foot complaint.

England need just two points to seal their place in next year's tournament in Russian Federation.
