Dier, 23, wore the captain's armband in the global friendly clash that finished 0-0 at Wembley, and although it was a goalless game, it definitely gave some encouragement ahead of the World Cup in Russian Federation next summer as Gareth Southgate was forced to field a second-string side.
The 23-year-old gave a good account of himself, as the Three Lions played out a goalless draw with Germany.
"He has so many good attributes".
"At times it was hard for them to press us because of the composure we showed and the system we played, so I think it was a brilliant experience for our players".

Demarai Gray and Dominic Calvert-Lewin had also been under consideration for experience.
According to Henry Winter of The Times, Arsenal legend and former England global Ian Wright came into the dressing room before the game and handed the debutants their shirts, at Southgate's request.
"I was a little bit disappointed with Rose. I just want to play more football", the 21-year-old said.
