Tottenham duo Dele Alli and Eric Dier play basketball in backyard

Dele Alli and Eric Dier are best friends and, as such, dedicate a high proportion of their lives to trolling each other, leaking embarrassing photos on social media and generally going tit for tat.

To that end, the Tottenham duo enjoyed a nice friendly game of backyard basketball recently -- a game that quickly became a tad over-competitive as Alli took charge out on the court.

While his sportsmanship left a lot to be desired, Alli's skills were impressive enough to grab the attention of the NBA, who complimented the Spurs forward on his defensive chops.

Honestly, if his body language is anything to go by, the last thing Dier wants is a rematch.

Rest assured though that he's almost definitely plotting his revenge already, which will probably consist of a flood of freshly unearthed Alli baby photos making their way onto the internet.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
