Dele Alli's career highs and lows

Dele Alli could face disciplinary action from FIFA after being caught making an obscene gesture on camera during England's World Cup qualifying win over Slovakia.

Tottenham midfielder Alli was shown making a middle-finger gesture which he said was aimed in jest at team-mate Kyle Walker, not the referee as had been suggested.

Here, we look at the highs and lows of Alli's career.

HIGH - After coming through the youth system at MK Dons, signs for Tottenham for a reported fee of £5million in February 2015 before being loaned back to the Dons for the rest of the season.

HIGH - Scores four goals during the loan spell, taking his tally for the season to 16 as MK Dons win promotion from League One.
