The FA Crest

A strong and steadying influence on any team in which he plays, the versatile midfielder is just as comfortable playing as a centre-half as he is in the engine room and has become a key player in the England squad.

Dier, grandson of former FA secretary Ted Croker, moved to Portugal as a youngster with his parents involved in the organisation of Euro 2004 and after showing his ability in the local school leagues in the Algarve, he was picked up by Sporting Lisbon. There, he climbed through the ranks and into the club's senior set-up whilst still being involved in England’s development teams following his debut for the U18s in 2011.

A switch to Spurs brought him back to his homeland in 2014 and under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino, he’s become one of the Premier League’s top midfielders and has captained both club and country on numerous occasions.


"I've told Eric he has what it takes to be the best English centre-back but he has to be convinced of that himself."
