Dele Alli will have a scan on his thigh after suffering a strain during England’s 2-1 win over Tunisia on Monday night.

The Tottenham midfielder started sharply as England took an early lead through Harry Kane in their World Cup opener.

But not long after Tunisia’s equaliser, Alli pulled up holding his thigh.

The 22-year-old was ineffective after the break and was surprisingly kept on by Gareth Southgate until the 80th minute.

Despite his performance dip, Alli seemed to be moving freely after half-time.

However, according to Sky Sports, he is set to undergo a scan to discover the extent of the injury.

If there is damage to the thigh, there is a chance Alli will miss England’s next group match against Panama.

The Three Lions will be hoping to avoid further injuries before the Panama game, especially to talisman Kane.

The Spurs striker bagged a memorable late winner to secure all three points against Tunisia, taking his international tally up to 15 goals 25 appearances.

Kieran Trippier also shone for England on the night, while Eric Dier was introduced as a stoppage time substitute and Danny Rose didn’t get off the bench.
