Spurs star not ready for England call - Pochettino

Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino believes it is too soon to talk about midfielder Dele Alli playing for England.

Alli, who left MK Dons in the summer, has been a revelation this season, forcing his way into Pochettino's starting line-up with a series of sparkling displays.

It's the same situation as last season with Harry Kane.

Be careful with the younger players, the players who arrive in the Premier League and perform well. It's not easy.

But again, like last season, it's not my decision. It's Roy Hodgson's decision if he wants to call up Dele Alli.

You can see he's a player that is very mature and shows great quality but always in football it's step by step and we need to be careful.

He will mature. He has personality and good character. But it is too much of a rush to talk about bigger steps for him.

Hugo Lloris remains committed to Tottenham but insists they must do better in Europe this season.

The 28-year-old goalkeeper has been handed the captain's armband at White Hart Lane after a summer when he was constantly linked with a move away from the club.

Manchester United were believed to be ready to bid for the former Lyon stopper if they lost David De Gea to Real Madrid - but the Spaniard remains at Old Trafford and Lloris told beIN Sport earlier in the week he too was happy to stay put.

Even though Lloris is not desperate for Champions League football, the France international wants to see more from the team in continental competition this year with the club having not made the quarter-finals since 2013.

I think European competition is always important when you are a player.

Each game is important and we know tomorrow we need a first win because the next two games are away against very good teams in Anderlecht and Monaco.

We expect a tough game because European competition is always hard so we need to be focused and have the mentality of winning.

I expect more from Tottenham and I expect more from me as well. We need to go as far as possible in the competition.

We know it is a trophy to get and you play only to win. There is also a possibility to get to the Champions League if you go to the final and win the final. It is so far away that we are focused on the group stage and the target is to finish first.
