Eric Dier will not be joining the England squad

Eric Dier (30, Bayern Munich) will not be joining the England squad.

The English Football Association on Wednesday named a 33-man preliminary squad for UEFA Euro 2024.

England manager Gareth Southgate named his preliminary squad for UEFA Euro 2024, which kicks off next month on June 14 in Germany. Dier’s name was nowhere to be seen.

Notably, Bayern Munich teammate and England captain Harry Kane has been a vocal supporter of Dyer’s inclusion, but Southgate has completely ignored him.

“I know he’s done well at Bayern Munich and I know he’s happy there,” 안전놀이터 Southgate said of Dyer, according to a report in the UK’s The Athletic on April 22.

However, he added: “I think Dier is behind the other players we have chosen. We watched all his games, and he obviously played big games like the UEFA Champions League, so we were conscious of that, but overall we evaluated him.”

Dyer, who was often derided by fans as a “defensive hole” during his time at Tottenham Hotspur, has had a remarkable turnaround this season.

Since joining Spurs from Sporting CP in 2014,

Dyer has made 363 appearances in all competitions for Spurs. Entering his 10th season with the club in 2023-2024, Dyer has played 197 games as a center back, 136 as a defensive midfielder, and 25 in other positions, making him an integral part of the team regardless of his ability.

A mainstay of the team each season, Dyer’s role suddenly diminished in 2023-2024. The departure of Antonio Conte and the arrival of new manager Enzi Postecoglou, with Mickey van der Vaan and Cristian Romero as the first-choice center backs, left Dyer, 온라인 슬롯 who had been a weak point in Tottenham’s defense, as a redundant resource who couldn’t easily make the bench.

Even when van der Vaan was injured and Romelu Lukaku was unavailable through suspension, Dier was only occasionally used as a substitute, losing out to fullback Emerson Royal.

Dier left Tottenham for ‘German powerhouse’ Bayern Munich, where he found himself in a different position. He was given a chance in the first half of the season while ‘regular’ Kim Min-Jae was away at the AFC Asian Cup, and has since earned Thomas Tuchel’s trust with his consistent performances.

in particular,

Dyer, proved himself capable of performing in big games, not only in league play but also in the Champions League, where he played in the first two legs of the round of 16, the first and second leg of the quarterfinals, and the first and second leg of the semifinals.

He also had a good reputation within the Munich club. Dier reportedly maintained a good relationship with his teammates by actively communicating with them. He also actively learned the unfamiliar German language, which completely changed his assessment at Tottenham.

However, he failed to make the national team. Southgate named 11 defenders in his squad – Jared Branswaite, Lewis Dunk, Joe Gomez, Mark Gehiro, Ezri Konsa, 에볼루션 바카라사이트 Harry Maguire, Jarel Kwansa, Luke Shaw, John Stones, Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker – but Dyer’s name was not among them.
