England manager Gareth Southgate reveals that Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli will miss Sunday's World Cup Group G game against Panama with a thigh strain.

England manager Gareth Southgate has confirmed that Dele Alli will miss Sunday's World Cup Group G game against Panama with a thigh strain.

The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder picked up the knock in England's 2-1 win against Tunisia on Monday and missed training the following day to undergo a scan.

Alli was doubtful for the fixture in Nizhny Novgorod, and Southgate has now officially ruled the 22-year-old out as the Three Lions seek to claim back-to-back wins in Russia.

"This morning [Alli] followed the exact programme we had planned," the England boss told reporters.

"He started training with the rest of the group and then did some more running on his own, so he's progressing really well.

"We're really pleased with where he is at, but he wouldn't be ready for the game."

Alli is likely to be replaced in the starting XI by Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
