World football governing body, FIFA, is set to

take disciplinary actions against Tottenham

and England midfielder Dele Alli, after the

highly-rated youngster gestured with his

middle finger during England’s victory Slovakia

on Monday.

The 21-year-old, however, responded to it by

saying it was a “joke with good friend” Kyle

Walker. Yet FIFA are still looking into the case

and will deal appropriate measures by late


Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, who

also described the gesture as a joke, said Alli

was unlucky to be caught on camera and that

his general behaviour is fantastic.

Alli and full-back Walker were team-mates at

White Hart Lane until Walker joined

Manchester City during the summer transfer


The incident occurred in the 77th minute after

Alli was body-checked by Fenerbahce

defender Martin Skrtel, and referee Clement

Turpin waved play on.

It initially appeared that Alli gestured towards

Turpin, with whom he also had words when he

was substituted in the 93rd minute.
