Kyle Walker hopes Dele Alli has won the first of many England caps this week.

The young midfielder, just 19, made his senior debut for the Three Lions off the bench late against Estonia last week before a 30-minute stint in Lithuania on Monday as England made it 1-0 out of 10 in Euro 2016 qualifying.

Kyle joined Dele in the line-up and started alongside Harry Kane. Andros Townsend made it four Spurs players in action when he came off the bench in the second half.

Dele’s performances at Spurs - he’s appeared in seven of eight Premier League games, starting four - earned the call into Roy Hodgson’s squad.

“Dele has been fantastic, a breath of fresh air,” said Kyle. “He’s a very exciting player, young but with both feet firmly on the ground, which is important.

“It was a massive learning curve for him in the right sense, getting a taste for it and hopefully he’ll be in the next squad. It’s going to be an exciting season for Tottenham and let's hope a good summer for England.”
