Eric Dier reveals what Sergio Ramos said following his strong tackle during Spain 2-3 England


England’s win against Spain in Sevilla will be remembered for many years to come.Spain hadn’t lost on home soil for 15 years, while England hadn’t won in Spain since 1987 But a Raheem Sterling brace and a Marcus Rashford strike put the Three Lions 3-0 ahead at half-time But, rather incredibly, there was an even better moment in the first-half for England fans In just the 11th-minute, Eric Dier launched into a crunching tackle on Spain captain Sergio Ramos in Spain’s own penalty area Dier won the ball cleanly but referee Szymon Marciniak deemed the tackle too robust and booked the midfielder for his challenge Booking or not, England fans loved it.That much could be seen by Sky Sports’ vote on Tuesday They gave fans four options: Sterling’s first goal, Rashford makes it two-nil, Sterling’s second goal or Dier’s tackle on Ramos More than 33,000 fans voted and a crazy 64% fans voted for Dier’s tackle.That’s how much they enjoyed it And it seems Ramos actually enjoyed being on the receiving end of it, as well.When asked if the Real Madrid defender said anything negative to him after the tackle, Dier actually admitted Ramos “congratulated” him “I just think the ball was there to be won and I think I won it.I don’t think it was a foul or a yellow card, really “It’s important to respect them, but at the same time, once we start the game, it’s every man for himself and we have to put our foot down, put a marker down and be aggressive – still with respect, but we have to be aggressive, be on the front foot and show that nothing is going to intimidate us ” After all, Ramos can’t really complain at being on the receiving end of a tough tackle Especially as footage has emerged of the defender treading on Sterling’s foot in the second-half
