World Cup: Super Eagles Fans Booed Dele Alli For Rejecting Nigeria

England ace found himself being booed by fans at Wembley after seemingly infuriating the Nigeria fans.

And it appears to be down to his decision to represent England rather than Nigeria.

Alli’s father is Nigerian, but he was born in England and grew up here.

Alli first represented England in 2015 and made his 24th appearance today at Wembley but it was overshaddowed somewhat as he was repeatedely booed by fans when on the ball.

Alli could have played for Nigeria but chose England and has represented them from Under 17 up to the first team.

Ahead of the 2016-17 seasons he changed the name used on his shirt to Dele, saying he felt no connection to his legal surname due to the separation from his mother.

He now wears Dele on his shirt for Tottenham and England.

He played in an attacking midfield trio with Raheem Sterling and Jesse Lingard as England led 2-0 at half time thanks to goals from Gary Cahill and Harry Kane, but Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi pulled one back after the break.

England are preparing for the World Cup later this month and play their first game against Tunisia on June 18.
