LONDON — Tottenham’s Dele Alli will miss England’s friendlies against Germany and Brazil with a hamstring problem.
The Football Association (FA) has confirmed Alli’s withdrawal from Gareth Southgate’s 26-man squad for Friday’s match against Germany and the meeting with Brazil four days later, both at Wembley.
The midfielder has undergone a scan and he is expected to be sidelined for around two weeks, leaving him touch and go for the North London derby at Arsenal on Nov. 18.
Toby Alderweireld (hamstring) and Hugo Lloris (groin) also missed Palace’s visit to Wembley and they are doubts for the match at the Emirates Stadium after undergoing scans on Friday.
Michel Vorm, Lloris’ deputy, suffered a knee injury in training and he also missed the fixture against bottom-club Palace, meaning third-goalkeeper Paulo Gazzanigga made his Spurs debut.
