Alli Suspended For One Match

England midfielder Dele Alli has been banned for one international match following his middle-finger gesture during the World Cup qualifier against Slovakia.

The Tottenham player was also fined 5,000 Swiss francs ($5155) by Fifa, who says the incident on 4 September was “offensive and unsporting”.

Alli will miss Thursday’s World Cup qualifier at home to Slovenia.

The 21-year-old will be available for the game against Lithuania on Sunday.
