Eric Dier has revealed that he has started calling Tottenham teammate Kyle Walker “the stallion.”
The club and country team-mates featured in England’s 3-0 victory over Scotland on Friday evening, which saw Walker assist Daniel Sturridge’s opener while also keeping a clean sheet at the back.
The 26-year-old full-back is known for bombing forward in Spurs’ system with both him and Danny Rose posing an attacking threat from their defensive positions.
Now, Dier, who is more conserved as a defensive midfielder has described Walker as “the stallion,” stating it’s because he’s like a racehorse.
“I call Kyle ‘the stallion’, because he’s like a racehorse, up and down that flank,” said Dier, as quoted by the official Tottenham club website.
Then going on to also talk about Rose, Dier said: “They are unbelievable physically, no-one can match them. They offer so much both defensively and offensively.
“I’m really happy for them and being involved in all three goals, that’s great for them as well. They deserve it because they work so hard at Spurs to be at that level.
“They then show the same form in international football as well, which is great for Tottenham and England. I’m delighted for them, they were fantastic.”
Walker has made 13 appearances for Tottenham this season, providing two assists.
He has been key to the Spurs back line, which has so far remained undefeated from 11 Premier League fixtures conceding just six goals.
Tottenham will face West Ham at White Hart Lane after the international break.
