Tottenham and England defender Eric Dier has opened up on his journey to re-joining the England squad

Tottenham and England defender Eric Dier has opened up about his journey to re-join the England squad.

Dier was recently called up to the England squad for the World Cup in Qatar. After some inconsistent years at Tottenham, Dier did not make the squad for England’s last major tournament.

Dier was previously heavily involved and with Antonio Conte he began to revive the form he once produced.

Now, Dier has opened up about his journey to being called up to the England squad.

“Obviously, I am well aware that it is a very privileged position to be in. There was a time when I thought I would no longer be involved in any way with England,” Dier said, as reported by the Evening Standard.

It’s no surprise to see Dier called up to England’s latest squad after an impressive season for Tottenham. Dier has appeared in every Spurs game so far this season and is an integral part of how Spurs play in their back three system.

Gareth Southgate usually opts for a similar system with England, especially against stronger opposition, so there is certainly a place for Dier in this current squad.

Whether Dier would start for England in a defense of two is a different story, but we could see him in the starting eleven at points during the tournament.
