Nathan Dyer insists he will not be kicked out of England contention. The Swansea winger, who faces West Bromwich Albion today, has been touted for a surprise call-up to Fabio Capello's squad against Netherlands this month following a series of impressive displays but was on the receiving end of a number of crude tackles – including Ashley Cole's red-card challenge – in Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Chelsea.
"Getting kicked just comes with football," said Dyer. "I'm jinky and it's what happens; it's the name of the game. From when I was younger I've always been kicked so it doesn't really bother me too much."
