VIDEO: England's Eric Dier has been a free-kick whizz since his time at Sporting

Surprised to see the Tottenham man step up ahead of Wayne Rooney and Harry Kane before firing past Russia on Saturday? He's been doing it since his time at Sporting!

So, who knew Eric Dier was decent at free-kicks?

The Tottenham midfielder opened the scoring with a sublime free-kick in Saturday’s Euro 2016 draw against Russia.

With Wayne Rooney and Harry Kane loitering around the ball, not many were predicting Dier to step up and smash it past Igor Akinfeev.

But those who know him from his days at Sporting in Portugal, it was nothing out of the ordinary, as you can see from this clip of the club's reserve game in 2012...
