The 28-year-old began both games in the centre of the back three, the same position he has for Antonio Conte’s Spurs team.

Following a nearly two-year absence from the international stage, Dier had earned the scorn of some, but his selection for the Nations League matches against both Germany and Italy marks a significant shift in the narrative. Although Southgate’s defence is full, Dier’s most recent call-up is well-deserved for those who paid attention to his commanding displays in the midst of Spurs’ back three under Antonio Conte.

He thanked Antonio Conte, whom he referred to as “the godfather” of Juventus’ existing system, for receiving him back on track.
