Herzogenaurach, 11th June 2016 – One of the world’s most talented young footballers, Dele Alli has continued his meteoric rise as the star of the latest First Never Follows film from adidas, which launched today ahead of his country’s opening game in the UEFA EURO 2016TM.

The film pays tribute to Alli’s playful personality, highlighting his trademark wave, his ever present grin and his notorious Myspace profile picture that had the football world laughing with him in 2015. Dele Alli has brought a new playful fearlessness to English football with his controlled flair and sublime touches from midfield that features throughout the film.

Ahead of the opening game of UEFA Euro 2016 TM, Dele Alli said:

“When I step on the pitch, I always try to bring the same attitude I’ve had since I first started playing. Never being afraid to try new skills or go in for a tackle or go for a something a bit special. That’s why I’ve always got a smile on my face, because I’m always trying something new. That attitude is what I’m going to bring to my first major international tournament, just as I did when I was playing at my local 5-a-side.”
