Hamstring injury rules Tottenham’s Dele Alli out of England friendlies



Jurgen Klopp questions Gareth Southgate’s selection policy after Sturridge and Oxlade-Chamberlain’s omission from the England squad.

LONDON — Tottenham’s Dele Alli will miss England’s friendlies against Germany and Brazil with a hamstring problem.

Alli suffered the injury in Spurs’ 3-1 win over Real Madrid on Wednesday, when he scored twice, and he was ruled out of Sunday’s Premier League match against Crystal Palace.

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.

Dele Alli scored twice in Tottenham’s win over Real Madrid in midweek.

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.
