Watch Dele Alli put England up by 2 goals against Malta

Dele Alli got a start in the England midfield against Malta, playing as the most advanced CM ahead of Jordan Henderson and Wayne Rooney. Using Alli in that way appears to have been a good decision by Gareth Southgate. Here he is scoring England's second goal of the day.

Malta's goalkeeper has been surprisingly competent, making a number of solid saves, including this one on Alli's first shot. But Alli never quits on the play, following his own shot and picking out an impressive finish with his second attempt.

There's likely no way back from two goals down from Malta, so this game should become an exhibition now, thanks to Alli finishing it off.
