England’s Dele Alli will miss next week’s home World Cup qualifier against Slovenia as punishment for flipping the bird.

Tottenham Hotspur’s young star made an offensive gesture during England’s 2-1 win over Slovakia last month.

Dele claimed the gesture was aimed at teammate and former Spurs pal Kyle Walker, but FIFA fined him close to $52,000 and has suspended him one match.

England will qualify for the 2018 World Cup should it beat Slovenia or draw and see Slovakia lose in Scotland on Oct. 5
