Eric Dier admits that it was pleasing to have his Tottenham Hotspur team-mates beside him when he scored his first goal for England against Germany on Saturday.

The midfielder’s injury time goal won a thrilling game for Roy Hodgson’s men, as they came back from two goals down to beat the world champions 3-2 in their own backyard in Germany.

Tottenham's players had a huge influence on the result, with Harry Kane, Dier, Danny Rose and Dele Alli all starting for England at the Olympiastadion in Berlin; Kane also got on to the scoresheet.

And Dier admits that he couldn’t have found better mates to celebrate his first England goal with than his Spurs team-mates; he has conceded that being part of such a special occasion with his club mates was a delightful experience.

When asked about his Spurs team-mates, the midfielder told FA TV: “Brilliant.  


“There is no better feeling than doing it with them; they deserve it as much as me.

“They were brilliant; obviously Harry got his goal, and Dele missing (laughs).”

Dier might have one more opportunity to impress Hodgson ahead of the European Championship when England host the Netherlands in an international friendly tomorrow at Wembley.
