Brazil 2014: Five unlikely England heroes (4)

Michael Dawson | Tottenham

Football News

In my opinion one of the most underrated defenders of his generation, Dawson is consistent, tireless and above all else, has bags of passion.

Since the partnership of Rio Ferdinand and John Terry dissolved, the heart of England's back-line has looked precariously fragile. Gary Cahill and Phil Jagielka can play, of that there is no doubt, but together they lack international experience, and their playing styles seem to contrast each other.

If Dawson can excel in his duties of leading a strong Tottenham side this year, there is every chance he will make it to Brazil, and perhaps pinch a starting spot. 

The odds are probably stacked against it, but if Dawson's form for Tottenham could be replicated on the international stage, there's no reason why he can't shine in Brazil, and make Joe Hart's job considerably easier.
