Are you watching Hodgson? England hopeful nets worldie against Man City

Eric Dier levelled the scores against league leaders Man City with a stunning strike before half-time after £55m man Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring earlier on.

The former Sporting Lisbon youngster pounced on a rare stray pass from the Belgian, as he fired a long range effort past stand in ‘keeper Willy Caballero to send the home side in happy.

The White Hart Lane faithful had seen an encouraging display from their side in the first half, but Harry Kane continued to lumber up front, despite some good efforts.

But it was the 21-year old, who is operating in an unfamiliar midfield role this season, who coolly fired from outside the box.

It levelled the scores in terms of goals, and in terms of offside calls – with both strikes coming amid calls players had been in offside positions.

Kyle Walker’s initial driven cross had come from an offside position, which bafflingly eluded the linesman.

Earlier, De Bruyne had been marginally ahead of the defence while chasing on to the ball, which he slotted past the baying Hugo Lloris.
