Where did Eric Dier come from?

England manager Gareth Southgate informed us last night that 23 year old Eric Dier will captain England tonight for the match game against the current World Champions Germany. The Spurs man will be the sixth man to lead out the Three Lions since Southgate took charge and will also be the fifth-youngest post-war captain. Southgate said:

“Eric is an established player in the side now. He plays with maturity and intelligence. He understands the game really well. He is also a great role model.

“His approach to everything is very professional. He hardly ever misses a game and plays in an unselfish manner. I think he can be even more of a leader than he currently is and I am hoping giving him this reward and responsibility will also bring even more out of him as well.

“He has the respect of everybody because of the way he is. He connects well with the whole group. He is a really top professional.”

Dier joined Spurs in 2014 and has gone on to play over 100 games for the club. He’s originally from Cheltenham, but came to White Hart Lane from Sporting CP in Lisbon, Portugal. He was picked up by them as a youngster whilst living out there with his parents and family. Tonight he shall be England captain.
