Mauricio Pochettino has heaped praise on his Tottenham stars in the England team and admitted he was ‘proud’ to see Eric Dier put in a big challenge on Sergio Ramos.

Tottenham had a host of players in the England squad as Gareth Southgate’s side claimed a stunning¬†3-2 win over Spain in Seville.

Dier produced an excellent midfield display, and Pochettino was quick to praise the impact of the players he manages on a weekly basis.

Mauricio Pochettino said, “I think they were outstanding and it’s difficult to say Eric [Dier] or Harry Winks or Harry Kane or Kieran Trippier [was best], I think all the team was brilliant.

“The motivation to play against Spain will be so useful [for Tottenham], you need to play with this attitude and then appear your quality and your talent.

Asked if he was proud of his defensive Eric Dier for the desire he showed to quell danger, Pochettino replied: “Yes of course, very proud.”
