Stan Collymore backs Tottenham youngster to score in England clash v Lithuania
By Harvey Byrne
Outspoken football pundit Stan Collymore has backed young Tottenham star Dele Alli to score in England’s World Cup qualifying match against Lithuania on Sunday afternoon.
The 20-year-old has been named in the Three Lions’ starting eleven which is set to play at Wembley for the 5.00pm kick off.
The match marks Alli’s 17th cap in an England shirt at his young age and he has previously bagged two goals against France and Malta.
But, Collymore has predicted the youngster to add to his tally against Lithuania, tipping Jermain Defoe and Alli to score in a 2-0 win on his personal Twitter account.
