EX­AM­PLE TO ALL IN ALLI’S RISE TO PEAK

The Football League Paper - - WOMEN'S FOOTBALL WEEKLY -

DELE Alli’s suc­cess for Eng­land il­lus­trates just what a won­der­ful and unique as­set the Foot­ball League is to this coun­try.

No other coun­try in Europe has three lower di­vi­sions as strong, com­pet­i­tive and phys­i­cally de­mand­ing as ours.

That’s why Dele, for all his ob­vi­ous tal­ent, has been able to step al­most straight from League One with MK Dons on to the in­ter­na­tional stage.

He’s a great ex­am­ple to young play­ers who might be think­ing twice about leav­ing an acad­emy to mix it in the rough stuff. Get out for six months, get tough­ened up and you never know where it could take you.
