MK Dons midfielder Dele Alli speaks of his desire to emulate childhood hero Steven Gerrard by scoring against Germany when his England U19 side travel to Oberhausen.

MK Dons midfielder Dele Alli has spoken of his desire to emulate his childhood idol Steven Gerrard by scoring against Germany on Monday night.

The 18-year-old, who has been earning plaudits for his club performances in recent months, is poised to travel with the England U19 side to take on their German counterparts in Oberhausen.

Alli, who has yet to score for the Young Lions, told TheFA.com: "I've had a few chances when I've been playing for England and I feel like they've been easy chances, but I've just been messing up so I can't wait to get off the mark.

"I am actually a Liverpool fan and Gerrard is someone I look up to massively. If the ball drops for me on Monday like it did for him against Germany, I'm smashing it!"

Alli, who was referring to England's 5-1 win against the four-time World Cup winners back in 2001, has reportedly been on the radar of 'two or three' Premier League sides.
