Spurs ace looks to Wales clash

13 Jun

Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier expects this week’s clash between England and Wales at Euro 2016 to be more like a Premier League match.

Dier netted what looked like being the winner for England in the clash with Russia on Saturday night but Vasili Berezutski’s stoppage-time equaliser meant they had to settle for a draw.

Next up for England is Wales on Thursday and Dier and his team-mates know England need to get a win but also know it will not be easy against a Welsh side packed with English-based players.

“Obviously there’s a lot to this game,” Dier said.

“I think it might be a bit less like an international game and a bit more of an English game, especially with the players involved. It might be a bit different to all the other games you’ve seen in the tournament, so I think that’s good for the spectators as well. It’s a massive game for them and for us, for many different reasons. Everyone is going to look forward to it.

“The underdogs are always up for it, always wanting to prove a point and that makes it even harder for the favourites. If we are the favourites we need to be even more well-prepared and more ready for it because they’ll be desperate to do their best, after the result they had [against Slovakia] as well.”
