Jamie Vardy: 'Dele Alli gesture was harmless'

"Dele and Kyle Walker joked together, and Dele made a gesture towards Kyle", said coach Gareth Southgate after qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.

Alli, who has a history of controversial onfield actions, appeared to be angry when he tangled with Slovakia centre back Martin Skrtel but had play waved on as he came off second best.

Television pictures showed Tottenham's Alli gesturing in the 77th minute of Monday night's 2-1 victory at Wembley.

If the incident is not mentioned in the referee's official match report, Alli could be punished retrospectively with anything up to a three-game ban if his actions are deemed to constitute misconduct.

Southgate will be hoping to avoid any sanctions, as he was bombarded with questions about the incident in his post match press conference.

Dele Alli's middle-finger gesture should not be investigated by Federation Internationale de Football Association as it was just "harmless banter", according to England team-mate Jamie Vardy.

And while the Tottenham ace insists he was gesturing towards Kyle Walker, Hart admitted: "The world is watching and Dele appreciates that".

"I don't know what's been visible on the pitch, or what the angle of the pitch was".

"So I don't know what's been visible on the picture and what the angle of the picture is but the pair of them, they've got a unusual way of communicating, that's what they've said when I've raised [the issue]. Without seeing it, I've literally just gone and asked him quickly".

Alli will now return to Spurs and will be hoping to continue his good form after two goals in the opening three league games.

His work without the ball was top drawer, intelligent positions and turning people over. "Hopefully we'll be talking about that".
