Arsenal star praises “strong” Tottenham Hotspur youngster

Football - England Training - St. George’s Park - 7/10/15 England's Dele Alli during training Action Images via Reuters / John Sibley Livepic EDITORIAL USE ONLY.Arsenal forward Theo Walcott has praised Spurs midfielder Dele Alli after the youngster broke into Roy Hodgson’s England squad this week. 

Alli, who was signed by Tottenham in January, has impressed massively so far at the club and has even drawn comparisons to footballing legend Zinedine Zidane.

Alli has already scored for his new club, scoring the first goal in a 1-1 draw away at Leicester, and has been praised for his strength and energy.

Walcott believes this is only the beginning for the Spurs star, who is on international duty with the England senior-team.

“He is very strong and good on the ball and I feel he has a big future for England and Tottenham,” says Walcott.

“I am there for him if he needs any advice. I came into the spotlight at a young age.” 

Walcott, who in 2006 became England’s youngest ever player at 17 years 75 days, believes it is important that Under-21 stars are progressing into the senior team.

Walcott remarked: “It’s nice to have some faces he knows because a few have come through now from the Under-21s.”

England face Estonia at Wembley Stadium on Friday in the UEFA Euro 2016 qualification group stage.
