England’s 2-2 draw with Spain at Wembley was pretty entertaining, considering it was only a friendly.

The Three Lions threw away a 2-0 lead in the final few minutes as La Rojo managed to miraculously score twice at the death to level the game.

But something ‘ridiculous’ may have been missed by everyone during the 90 minutes that has come to light this morning.

Did anyone see Ander Herrera’s elbow on Eric Dier?

No, us neither - neither have we been able to find a video of the incident.

But Spurs midfielder Dier is extremely angry with Manchester United’s Herrera - and has promised revenge.

The Evening Standard even claims that Dier ‘chased’ Herrera around the pitch after the alleged elbow and didn’t mince his words after the match.

"I don't care if someone kicks me or something like that but I've made a pass and it was a long time afterwards...he's elbowed me in the face and I just can't see why. For me, it's just ridiculous," Dier said.

"I don't mind people kicking each other at times and stuff but that's just dirty and not needed.

"He's saying he didn't do it but I think it's pretty clear. If you watch it, I think it's pretty clear what he did and I can feel it on my cheek now. So I know what he did, and I don't like that kind of stuff.

"It's okay. It's just football. These things happen. But I don't know why he did it, to be honest. That's why I was angry.

"It was just strange and it's not nice. I don’t need him to apologise. I’ll see him soon.”

After reading those quotes, we immediately looked at the fixture list and were delighted to see Spurs travel to Old Trafford on December 11. We won't have to wait long to see Dier and Herrera clash once again - it's sure to be interesting.

Herrera was actually making his debut for the Spanish senior side when he came on as substitute at Wembley. The midfielder was introduced shortly after Gareth Southgate’s side went 2-0 up, so will be delighted that he could help inspire Spain to achieve an unlikely draw.
