Tottenham boss Conte 'really pleased' for Dier after England recall

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte is delighted for Eric Dier over his England recall.

Dier was named in England’s Nations League qualifying squad today.

Conte said, “First of all I’m really pleased because when my players are called up to the national teams, we are really proud. Because it means we are working very well, and we are trying to help the players to go with the national teams. In this case for Eric it was a really good achievement for him, but what I can only tell him is that this has to be a point of start.

“That he has to gain the possibility to go to the World Cup, especially in this month and a half that we have before the World Cup.

“To continue to play well, to have a good performance, to show he has really good stability, that he is a really reliable player. And what I can tell him is only this – continue on this way, to continue to work hard and have this concentration. For the rest I think my staff and I and team-mates are very happy for this call up to the national team.”
