Alli is the top wonderkid in the world

According to football magazine FourFourTwo, Dele Alli is the top wonder kid in the world.

The popular magazine comprised a list of the 59 best u21 footballers and Alli came first. After a slow start to the season, Alli has started to find the form he had last season – scoring against Stoke, Manchester City and most recently for England vs Malta.


Alli beat the likes of Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman, 20 (2nd) and Renato Sanches, 19 (3rd).

A thoroughly modern footballer, but one with anachronistic traits: Alli influences games in short, sharp doses. Rather than being a stable attacking presence, his best moments tend to appear from nowhere. He can be anonymous, but then with a flash of those feet or one of those instinctive late runs, he can change a game’s texture in a heartbeat.

“His balletic goal against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, for instance, was an unlikely exclamation point in a thoroughly unremarkable performance. That is the Alli calling card, though, and the precious trait of a match-winner.

A remarkable rise from the former MK Dons youngster. All together now; WE’VE GOT ALLI!
