Dele Alli: 'I want to be like my hero Steven Gerrard'

England Under-19s midfielder Dele Alli dreams of emulating his hero Steven Gerrard by scoring against Germany in Dusseldorf on Monday evening.

MK Dons teenager Dele Alli has revealed that he wants to replicate his hero Steven Gerrard by scoring his first international goal against Germany.

England Under-19s take on Germany in Dusseldorf on Monday evening and Liverpool fan Alli sees the encounter as the perfect opportunity to emulate Gerrard.

"It's something I have been thinking about," Alli told the Daily Mail.

"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. If I get the goal I'll obviously be happy but the win is all that matters."

Alli, 18, has been linked with a move to Manchester United and Liverpool in recent weeks.
