Dier revealed England U21 coach Gareth Southgate has assured him he won't be ignored playing in Portugal.
"Gareth's really good with that," revealed the 19-year-old.
"He spoke to me last time I was here because he'd seen some of my games on tape, so I appreciate that.
"He keeps an eye on me, because I'm obviously in a different country, so that's good for me."
