Alli embracing leadership role with England

Dele Alli says Gareth Southgate has challenged his England players to show more leadership on and off the pitch, and admits he is relishing the prospect of shouldering greater responsibility within the squad.

"He’s said to us that he wants more leaders in the group, and I think with the boys we’ve got here there are a lot of people who are ready to step up and want to make a mark for their country," Alli said in an interview with ITV Sport's Gabriel Clarke.

Asked if he considered himself to be a potential leader, Alli replied: "I’d like to think so. When you’re playing you always want to win and help each other out as much as you can, so when you want to have an impact on the game that comes out naturally."

Mark Pougatch introduces live coverage of the international friendly between Germany and England in Dortmund.

Ian Wright, Ryan Giggs and Lee Dixon provide studio analysis, while commentary comes from Clive Tyldesley and Glenn Hoddle.
