Euro 2016: Alli assists England winner

16 June 2016

MK Dons Academy graduate Dele Alli set-up England’s stoppage-time winner against Wales on Thursday, in a Euro 2016 clash which featured two former Dons.

Alli showed great feet inside the area to lay on striker Daniel Sturridge, who finished past Wayne Hennessy to secure a vital three points for Roy Hodgson’s side and move them top of Group B.

Wales, who brought on former Dons loanee Jonny Williams in the 72nd minute, had led at half-time courtesy of Gareth Bale’s free-kick – his second in as many games – but Three Lions substitute Jamie Vardy levelled things up with a close-range strike.

On the bench for Wales were striker Simon Church and Academy graduate George Williams, both of whom are still awaiting their first appearances of the tournament.

Next up for Alli and Co is a trip to St Etienne to face Lens – England will qualify for the knockout stages with a draw, while a victory will see them through as group winners.

Wales, meanwhile, take on Russia in their final match knowing a win will put them in the Last 16.

Both games take place on Monday at 8pm and will be shown live on ITV.
