Spurs Midfielder Dele Outshines Malta Star Effiong In World Cup Qualifier Tottenham Hotspur midfielder of Nigerian ancestry Dele Alli helped England maintain their unbeaten start to the European World Cup qualifiers after finding the back of the net in a routine 2-0 win over Malta on Saturday evening.

Alli and Nigerian-born striker Alfred Effiong both made the starting line-up for their respective nations, but it was the Spurs star that stole the show when he put the Young Lions 2-0 up in the 38th minute.

Five minutes before full time, the former MK Dons starlet almost made it 3-0 but but somehow managed to miss the target after Rashford directed a ball squarely in the box.

Whilst Balzan star Effiong departed the hallowed Wembley turf in the 76th minute in what appeared to be a tactical substitution, Dele played the full game.

England now sit in first place in Group F with six points in the kitty ahead of Scotland’s match with Lithuania on Saturday night.

Former Watford wing-back Ikechi Anya is on the bench for the Scots at Hampden Park.
