Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli has ‘that swagger that Brazilians have’ according to World Cup legend Roberto Carlos.
Brazil have been one of the most attractive footballing nations in World Cup history, producing amazing players such as Pele, Rivaldo, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, and more recently Neymar and Gabriel Jesus.
Their samba style football and iconic yellow shirts make them known world wide, as well as seeing them lift a record five World Cup trophies over their illustrious history.
As we prepare for another fantastic footballing feast this summer with the World Cup in Russia, one of Brazil’s most incredible left-back’s of all time, Roberto Carlos, has claimed that England’s Dele Alli is ‘a lot like a Brazilian.’
“I really like Dele Alli – he’s a lot like a Brazilian player,” Carlos told the Sunday Mirror.
“I saw him at the Real Madrid against Spurs game and he was impressive.
“He’s tall and has real ability – a very good player. He has that swagger that Brazilians have.”
Alli burst on to the scene as a teenager at MK Dons, before making a £5 million move to Spurs in 2015. Since then, he has earned a reputation as one of the top players in the Premier League and has cemented his place as an England regular.
