Spurs man Dier has explained that he would interested in taking up the role in the future and said it’s something he would like to work towards.
“Yeah it’s an ambition of mine (to captain England), I’d love to one day be able to do that,” Dier said, as quoted by Sky Sports. “But I think that is something that would be a real honour for me and that is something I would like to work towards.”
