Tottenham duo Dele Alli and Kieran Trippier have formed a close bond on the pitch… and it’s clear that it translates off it too.
The pair were named in Gareth Southgate’s final 23-man England squad for the upcoming World Cup on Wednesday afternoon.
And just a few hours later they were celebrating their selections together abroad.

Trippier and Alli are currently enjoying a short holiday before they meet up with Southgate and Co as preparations for Russia gather pace.
And Trippier took to his new Instagram account on Wednesday night to pose for a picture with Alli.
Captioned ‘Nice time away’, both of them are a picture of happiness as they pose for a photo alongside friends and fellow footballers Harry Hickford of Forest Green Rovers and Giorgio Rasulo of MK Dons.
Alli also took to social media to share a picture of himself with Trippier.
Sitting on a sofa with pool in the backdrop, the attacking midefielder wrote: ‘Finally! Make sure you follow @ktrippier2 #makekieransmile.’
England kick off their World Cup campaign against Tunisia on June 18 before subsequent group games against Panama and Belgium.
Trippier and Alli will hope to inspire England to World Cup glory in Russia this summer
