Video: Dele Alli Beats Kieran Trippier to Become Tottenham Footpool Champion

Dele Alli is having quite the season already after moving to Tottenham from MK Dons in the summer.

The 19-year-old midfielder has appeared in 10 of Spurs’ 12 matches so far this term, earning rave reviews as well as a call-up to Roy Hodgson’s England and two international caps.

He’s now in with a real chance of achieve success at White Hart Lane this season and must have one eye on Euro 2016 in France next summer.

It’s been no problem moving from League One football with Mark Robinson’s Dons to competition at the highest level under Mauricio Pochettino.

But his biggest achievement to date? It’s not any of the above.

Instead, it’s his recent victory in Tottenham’s Footpool 2015 tournament.

Alli beat off competition from Kieran Trippier, Kevin Wimmer and Toby Alderweireld to take the top prize as football and pool combined at the club’s training ground:

Just don’t expect him to get too excited about it.
