Tottenham's Eric Dier asked not to play for England Under-21s so he can focus on winning a centre-half place with his club.
Dier has been filling in at right-back for most of the season and played there for England's U-21s last month, but it's not his natural position and it has started to show. After a bright start the young defender has struggled and was recently replaced by Kyle Naughton in the Tottenham starting XI after a few of his errors led to goals conceded. Dier has asked Gareth Southgate if he can stay with Spurs during the international break because he "feels there are parts of his game that he wants to work at", namely his skills as a central defender. 20-year-old Dier is quite right to have an eye on a starting spot in that position, with Jan Vertonghen, Younes Kaboul and Federico Fazio all performing poorly at the moment.
