Former Tottenham man Dele Alli wants to play for England in the 2026 FIFA World Cup

According to Ben Jacobs via X, former Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli has opened up about his determination to reignite his career and chase his dream of representing England at the 2026 World Cup. Despite facing a challenging period marked by injuries and a lack of regular playing time, Dele remains steadfast in his pursuit of returning to peak form and securing another Premier League transfer.

Currently on the books at Everton, Dele’s last competitive appearance dates back to February 26, 2023, during a loan spell at Turkish side Besiktas. Since then, he has grappled with a series of injuries that have stalled his progress and raised questions about his future in professional football.

As his contract with Everton approaches its expiration, Dele finds himself at a crossroads in his career, with his next move likely to be pivotal in determining his trajectory. Despite these setbacks, his track record speaks for itself; 51 goals and 35 assists in 194 Premier League appearances, and his 37 England caps as well.

Go on, Dele!

During his time at Tottenham, Dele established himself as a prolific midfielder, consistently delivering 20-goal seasons and earning a place in England’s squad for the 2018 World Cup. 269 appearances for Spurs across all competitions. 67 goals and 59 assists. However, issues both on and off the field have hindered his development and contributed to a decline in his form and confidence.

Despite the challenges he’s faced, Dele remains resolute in his ambition to return to the top of his game and force his way into contention for the 2026 World Cup squad. The tournament, set to take place roughly two years from now, presents Dele with an opportunity to reignite his international career and showcase his talents on the global stage.

For Dele, the dream of representing England at another World Cup serves as a daily reminder of the heights he once reached and the potential that still lies within him.

“I have a reminder on my phone every single day at eleven o’clock that says “World Cup 2026″. That’s my aim. That’s my level.”
