Dyer Relishing Baines Test

Swansea winger Nathan Dyer can't wait to test himself against Leighton Baines.

Dyer was one of Swansea's star performers last season and his form at the start of this campaign has seen him linked with an international call-up.

A solid showing against Baines, the man who played England's last two World Cup qualifiers, would only further enhance Dyer's reputation.

"I think it will give me an extra nudge to face a player of his quality," he admitted.

"But when I go out I just enjoy playing, I don't think I need to do this or that for something else to happen, what comes my way, comes my way.

"It has been nice to get mentioned and to have other players and fans recognise I have been playing well, but it's one of those things, you have to keep going, keep grinding out performances, scoring goals and making assists and hopefully you can get a chance.

"But the players in the England squad are great players themselves, so I am not going to say that I should be involved, that's up to selectors and it's up to me to keep pushing."

Dyer revealed that he'd watched Baines and left-sided partner Steven Pienaar wreak havoc against Newcastle on Monday but insisted he and his own full-back cohort Angel Rangel were more than capable of causing problems.

He said: "I watched the game the other day and Baines has been a great left-back for a number of years and Pienaar is very good on the ball.

"But me and Angel have played together for years and we have a good understanding. So while they are good players, it will also be a good test for them as we can get forward and create a lot of chances."
