Per de Jager: I’m not surprised to see Dani Dantsel leave the England squad, I think he’s the best player in the world.
But he needs to be playing.
Dantel has been the key man at the heart of England’s defence for the last two years and has had to deal with the injuries that have been the norm in recent years.
England’s defensive record in the World Cup was excellent but this was the best performance of his career, and he’s now got to face the World Team again.
Dantela is the best defender in the whole world and his contribution to England’s campaign was impressive.
Ahead of the game against Brazil, Dantelo said: “It’s just something you do in your own way and in your personal time.
I know my role and I just go and play my game and that’s the way I do it.”
England’s World Cup campaign ended with a win over Brazil in Sao Paulo.
Dante and England’s players will return home on Tuesday with the aim of qualifying for the World Championships in Brazil.
