Audi Cup 2015

The midfielder was the star of the show in the 2-0 win over France on Tuesday.

Speaking to the club’s official Twitter account, Eric Dier says Tottenham teammate Dele Alli deserves his current success.

The young midfielder has enjoyed a strong start to his first season at White Hart Lane, firmly establishing himself in the first team despite his young age.

His impressive performances in the Premier League have also seen him earn a fast call up to the England squad, where he has also impressed.

After coming on as a substitute against Spain, he was the star of the show in the 2-0 win over France on Tuesday as he scored the game’s opening goal to mark his full debut in spectacular fashion.

And, as reported by the club’s official Twitter account, Dier says he deserves his current success.

“Myself and ‪Dele Alli have enjoyed ourselves recently, playing game after game & it was great to play alongside him again,” he said.

“[He] is on a great wave at the moment & I'm delighted. He's a great lad with his feet on the ground & deserves it."

The France game was also a big one for Dier, as he got to make his debut at Wembley.

The Spurs man has enjoyed a strong start to the season himself, having flourished in a newfound defensive midfield role for the side.

Those performances saw him earn his first England call-ups during this international break, and he says he couldn’t have asked for a better Wembley debut that against France.

"To start my first England game at Wembley v France you can’t ask for much more than that,” he added.
