Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier: England still have much to make up for

Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier was delighted to be part England's win in Slovakia.

Dier was pleased to start life under Sam Allardyce with a win but said there was still plenty of work to do to heal the scars of a summer of hurt at the European Championship.

"It is nice to get off to a winning start for us and the manager as we try to put the Euros behind us," he said.

"It is nice to have played another game for England so that the one at the Euros is not the last one now.

"There is a long way to go until the scars have been healed but it is a start. All we can do is win against whoever we have in front of us but I think there is a long way to go before we repay everyone for what happened in the Euros.

"And for ourselves as well because we were the most unhappy of everyone and there is a long way to go until we are happy again."
