Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Eric Dier’s England call-up

Audi Cup 2015

Eric Dier has been in excellent form for Tottenham this season.

Eric Dier has capped his fantastic season with Spurs by winning his first international call-up for England.

As confirmed yesterday, Dier joins Spurs teammates Dele Alli, Kyle Walker and Harry Kane in Roy Hodgson’s squad for the upcoming friendlies against Spain and France.

After a hit and miss debut season in English football, Dier has established himself as a key Spurs player this season, transforming from full-back to defensive midfielder with relative ease.

Alongside Alli in midfield, Dier has excelled, and their solid performances have been central to the success Tottenham have enjoyed this season.

The North London club look far more defensively solid than in recent years, and whilst Tony Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen deserve praise for their defensive work, it is Ali and Dier in midfield who provide the solidity and rigidity needed for a team who have ambitions to break into the top four.

Dier’s transformation from defender to top class midfielder has been the real highlight of Tottenham’s season, and he has rightfully been called up to the senior England squad for the upcoming friendlies.

Following the news, Spurs fans took to Twitter to react to the call-up, with many praising Dier for the exceptional season he has enjoyed at White Hart Lane.
