A lot more than the rest of them put together. Controlled the game, covered when he had to and looked to pick passes. Laid a fifty yarder on to Sturridge in the first half but his first touch let him down and played a great ball over the top in the second half to Sturridge who just kicked fresh air.
Who would you say was better?
Well, here's a starting point:
"Nathaniel Clyne created seven chances for England, equalling their record for a single major tournament match since 1980..."
I agree Clyne played well but my perspective was that he disappeared in the second half and wasn't as effective when Slovakia made changes and put someone on who could actually defend a bit.
I've also checked a few online news outlets and the Daily Mail, The Mirror, BBC and The Independent all had Dier as MOTM.
It's all about opinions at the end of the day.
