Ferguson’s ‘SON best friend’s’ ‘final goal’ to qualify for the 2026 WC “That’s my level”

Dele Alli (Everton), known for being a close friend of Son Heung-min, revealed that his final dream is to play in the 2026 World Cup in North and Central America. 

Alli appeared as a guest on Sky Sports’ “Monday Night Football” during the 33rd round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) match between Chelsea and Everton at Stamford Bridge in London, England, on Sept. 16 (KST). 

Alli is an English international attacking midfielder. A two-time PFA Team of the Year selection and two-time PFA Young Player of the Year, he was once one of England’s most promising young players. After joining Tottenham Hotspur in 2015, he was labeled as the heir apparent to Frank Lampard.

Ali was born in Milton Keynes, in the north of Buckinghamshire, the son of a Nigerian father and English mother, and joined his hometown club MK Dons youth team at the age of 11. He made his first-team debut in the FA Cup in November 2012, when he was just 16 years old, and scored in the replay.

In the 2013-14 season, he was given a lot of first-team opportunities. He finished with seven goals in 37 appearances, including six in 33 league games. In 2015, he moved to Tottenham before being loaned back to MK Dons. In the 2014-15 season, he scored 16 goals in 44 games, helping the club win promotion to the EFL Championship.

For his performances, he was named to the PFA Ligue 1 Best 11, the MK Dons Player of the Year as voted by the players, and the Football League Young Player of the Year. In 2015-16, Alli teamed up with Son Heung-min at Tottenham. In his first season, Alli scored 10 goals and provided 11 assists in 46 games, was named to the PFA Team of the Year, and won the PFA Young Player of the Year.

In 2016-17, he reached career highs. He had his best season ever with 22 goals and 13 assists in 50 games, earning PFA Team of the Year honors and PFA Young Player of the Year honors again. In 2017-18, he had another breakout season with 14 goals and 17 assists in 50 games and signed a new contract with Spurs through 2024.

He was a standout at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. After making his England debut at the tender age of 19, Alli was named to England’s final roster for the World Cup in Russia. In the quarterfinals against Sweden, Alli scored a header in a 2-0 win to help England reach the quarterfinals. 

After that season, however, Alli’s form plummeted. In 2018-19, he had a career-low season with Tottenham, scoring seven goals and providing eight assists in 38 games. Injuries kept him out of a lot of games, and his offensive stats and performance suffered in the aftermath. He was also unsuccessful in the UEFA Champions League final.

In the 2019-20 season, under the tutelage of Jose Mourinho, there were high hopes for Alli, but he was unable to bounce back. Mourinho said at the time that “Alex Ferguson raved about him,” and that he would keep him, but Alli only managed nine goals and six assists in 38 games.

In 2020-21, Alli scored three goals and provided five assists in 29 games before leaving Tottenham in the winter transfer window of 2021-22. He joined Everton 카지노 for a new challenge. However, he struggled to compete for a starting role at Everton and was eventually sent out on loan to Turkkiye Besiktas JK last season. Alli has been left out of the final squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. 

In an interview ahead of this season, Ali opened up about her past traumas and wanderlust, and revealed that she suffers from an addiction to sleeping pills due to insomnia. He spent six weeks in rehab in the United States to treat his addiction.

The Premier League season has been a blur since the start, but he has yet to play due to a hip injury and mental stability. He recently returned to training but was sidelined again with a groin injury. It’s urgent that he focuses on his rehabilitation for the rest of the season and gets back on the pitch as soon as possible.

Ali revealed his goals during the broadcast. ”Every day at 11 o’clock, my phone pops up with a notification saying ‘World Cup 2026’. That’s my goal, that’s my level. My goal now is the World Cup. I recover every day and make sure my injuries are healed. I’m trying to be in the best condition possible after the summer.”
