Dele Alli’s surprise omission from the Tottenham Hotspur 18 for Sunday’s match against Crystal Palace is a blow for England as well.

Multiple reports say Dele will miss the Three Lions’ high-profile friendlies against Brazil and Germany during the international break. A replacement is yet to be announced by Gareth Southgate.

The 21-year-old has a hamstring injury, short-circuiting a fine return to form which saw him score twice against Real Madrid at midweek.

Dele has three Premier League goals this season and four more in other competitions, and has two assists in his last four caps for England. He has two goals in 22 caps all-time.
