Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin Takes a Cheeky Dig at Dele Alli’s ‘Deflected’ Goal For England

Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin Takes a Cheeky Dig at Dele Alli’s ‘Deflected’ Goal For England

Last night was a glorious night for Tottenham star Dele Alli, with the young midfielder scoring on his first start for England.

The promising Spurs man, who is still only 19, started in the centre of midfield at Wembley against France on Tuesday evening in a warm-up game for Euro 2016, and he did himself absolutely no harm at all.

Taking a tight pass from Wayne Rooney on the half-hour mark, Alli proceeded to blast the ball past his Spurs team-mate Hugo Lloris in the French goal, to set his side on their way to a 2-0 victory.

Replays of he goal showed that it was a pretty clean strike, with the only doubt coming whether or not the ball had taken the slightest, most minuscule touch on Laurent Koscielny’s arm on its way to the top corner.

It would be harsh, in our opinion, to label the goal a deflection but Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin doesn’t think so, favouriting a tweet on Wednesday morning hint at as much, whilst giving a pat on the back to Gunners team-mate Jack Wilshire…

To be fair to Bellerin, we’d forgotten just how good that Jack Wilshere strike was, but it’s still more than a touch controversial.

The next north London derby should be interesting!
