England midfielder Eric Dier hails 'brilliant' coach Gareth Southgate

The FC crew assess the use of VAR in England's draw with Italy and whether Italy were awarded a penalty as a result of a 'clear and obvious' mistake.
England boss Gareth Southgate expressed doubts over a late penalty that earned Italy a draw at Wembley with the help of VAR.

Eric Dier has said England coach Gareth Southgate will not be hampered by his lack of experience at the highest level, telling the Evening Standard he has been "brilliant from the start."

Dier played 90 minutes as England continued their preparations for the World Cup with a 1-1 draw against Italy at Wembley on Tuesday.

England were denied by a late VAR-assisted Lorenzo Insigne penalty but the performance was another encouraging step for Southgate, previously in charge of Middlesbrough and England...

Goalkeeper: Jordan Pickford

If you cast your mind back to last summer, the prevailing wisdom was that Everton had "won" the transfer market. As it turned out, only Pickford represented much of an upgrade on what they already had, and while he hasn't been flawless in the intervening months, he's done enough to...

Lucas Moura's qualities, intelligence make him a fit at Tottenham - Eric Dier

Mauricio Pochettino defended Dele Alli, whose diving antics resurfaced in Tottenham's win at Crystal Palace.

LONDON -- Eric Dier said Lucas Moura boasts the deadly combination of pace and a final ball as the Brazilian prepares for another opportunity to impress in Tottenham Hotspur's FA Cup fifth-round replay against Rochdale.

Lucas, who joined Spurs from Paris Saint-Germain for £24.5 million last month, impressed on his full debut in the FA Cup fifth-round at Spotland a fortnight ago, scoring in a 2-2 draw, and he is expected to start again in the replay at Wembley Stadium.

English Premier League: Harry Kane (54') Crystal Palace 0-0 Tottenham

LONDON -- Eric Dier told Dele Alli to keep ignoring "irrelevant" opinions after Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer accused the Tottenham Hotspur attacker of another dive against Crystal Palace.

Alli has been under intense scrutiny since he was booked for diving at Liverpool earlier this month -- his third yellow card for simulation since he joined Spurs in summer 2015.

Writing on Twitter, former England strikers Lineker and Shearer both accused the 21-year-old of diving again when he tumbled over goalkeeper...

Check their DMs: Fernandinho, Matic, and others key to a manager's tactics

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop reveals his latest power rankings which see Liverpool and Atletico Madrid fail to make the cut.

Throughout the Premier League era, English football has never entirely embraced the defensive midfielder. In fact, the very concept has routinely prompted dissent from English fans.

Traditionally, the English game has produced plenty of box-to-box midfielders and the natural urge was therefore to field two players in that mould together. David Batty's outstanding performances for Leeds, Blackburn and Newcastle sides were often overlooked, as was Michael Carrick's excellent work for Manchester United....
