England to include Dele Alli in next squad despite Federation Internationale de Football Association ban threat

Friday, 29 Sep, 2017

England have called up Dele Alli for the final round of World Cup qualifiers, despite the Tottenham midfielder potentially facing a ban.

A three-match ban would rule Alli out of the upcoming qualifiers against Slovenia and Lithuania, as well as potentially the first game of next year's World Cup in Russian Federation should England qualify.

The Manchester City midfielder has worked his way back into Pep Guardiola's first-team plans this season and looks set for an extended stint in the team, albeit at left-back, after Benjamin Mendy's injury.

Fit-again Jordan Pickford or Fraser Forster will take injured third-choice keeper Tom Heaton's place, though it remains to be seen whether Southgate replaces injured duo Danny Welbeck and Nathaniel Chalobah.

Leicester forward Jamie Vardy has been sidelined, following manager Craig Shakespeare's statement that he only returned to training on Thursday following a hip problem.

Sky Sports News had reported Alli would be selected for the squad regardless of whether he suspended by Federation Internationale de Football Association for making an offensive gesture during England's 2-1 win over Slovakia at Wembley last month. "We hope common sense prevails", said Southgate, who said England would consider appealing any suspension.

The 47-year-old told reporters: "Fabian Delph is a really good player". We have a situation in midfield where we need more competition and more alternative.

Delph, 27, last played for England nearly two years ago when coming off the bench in an global friendly defeat to Spain. "He was a very important player for a period with Roy (Hodgson) and he's been unfortunate with injuries". "We hope to have him available".
