England’s 2-1 win over Tunisia did come at a price as Tottenham star Dele Alli had to be taken off with 10 minutes remaining in the game.
The Englishman did start the game well and had a great first half but his influence in the clash reduced in the second half as Tunisia looked to hold on for a point.
While Harry Kane was the saviour for the Three Lions with a late headed winner, there is some concern for Alli, and the 22-year-old was quoted by the Independent as saying:
“Hopefully I’m OK. It’s my quad.”
The Englishman is also expected to undergo a scan on the thigh according to Sky Sports. The England and Tottenham fans will hope that the injury is not serious as England’s chances depend on the youngster.
England’s next game will come against Panama while the next clash would be against Belgium on 28 June.
Hopefully, the player will be back to his best to provide England with a chance of doing well in Russia.
Alli scored 14 goals and provided 14 assists for Tottenham this past season but he has not provided any output for England so far.
The World Cup is his place to shine and some seem a little worried about Alli being injured.
England return to training after #TUN win – only subs (playing & non-playing) involved, rest recovering at hotel. Dele Alli gone for scan on thigh problem but was walking fine this morning. Tomorrow the only complete day off for players & staff at this #WorldCup #ENG #ThreeLions pic.twitter.com/PMzfoeDvz3

I would play Dier and Rose (if fit) v Panama – keeps more players involved and hungry and the ability of the side stays v similar.
I’d rest Alli’s thigh and bring in Loftus-Cheek.
I would play Sterling.
And keep 3 at the back.
