Matt Le Tissier: Harry Kane will help Tottenham teammate Dele Alli’s England chances

23 Mar

Matt Le Tissier has suggested that Harry Kane and Dele Alli’s partnership for Tottenham will aid the latter in playing a key role at Euro 2016.


The duo have been in formidable form for Spurs this season, and have become key parts of the most exciting attacking unit in the Premier League.

The Alli to Kane assist-to-scorer path is the most prolific in the division, bringing a return of seven goals, with the midfielder himself chipping in with some vital strikes.

Kane is almost guaranteed to start for England this summer, when they head to France for the European Championship, but there are still doubts about Alli and whether Roy Hodgson will select the 19-year-old.

He has only recently risen to prominence, and Hodgson could revert to his more established options this summer, but Le Tissier believes the youngster will benefit from having built such a prolific partnership with Kane.

The Southampton great said: “Kane and Alli are fantastic together. As manager of the national side Roy’s probably looking at that and that will help Alli’s case.

“The fact that their relationship this season has gone from strength to strength could tip it in his favour.”

Le Tissier also believes England are enjoying a period of great strength in their striking options, claiming that the forward positions are the strongest area of Hodgson’s team.

“I like the fact we’ve got some talented forwards in good form this season,” he added.

“I think that’s the strongest area of our team, which has not always been said about the England team over the last few years.

“It would be nice if we went out and tried to win matches rather than going out trying not to lose.”
