Video: Dele Alli Pulls Off Most Understated Nutmeg on Eric Dier

Dele Alli pulled off the most understated nutmeg on Eric Dier during England training yesterday.

The Tottenham midfielder looks a lot more confident for his club after finding some of his best form over recent weeks and scoring in the 2-0 victory over Manchester City at the weekend.

And that looks like it will carry over to the English national team as they prepare for World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovenia this week.

Alli joined up with his England team-mates yesterday and had some fun in training – including this brilliantly understated nutmeg on Spurs pal Eric Dier:

How good is that? And Alli’s face afterwards is great as he checks to see if Dier even noticed he’d been embarrassed.

Both players should be involved from the start when England face Malta at Wembley on Saturday and will be expecting to get another win after kicking off their World Cup qualifying campaign with victory over Slovakia.
