The defender was drafted in by Sven Goran Eriksson after Luke Young was forced to withdraw from the squad with a recurrence of an ankle injury.
Ã¢â‚¬ËœDawsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, 22, enjoyed an outstanding season at the heart of our defence as we finished fifth in the Premiership and qualified for the UEFA Cup.
He joins five Spurs team-mates already in the squad with Paul Robinson, Jermaine Jenas, Michael Carrick and Aaron Lennon in the 23 and Jermain Defoe also on stand-by.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s very much a reflection of first and foremost the season MichaelÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s had and the consistency he showed throughout and the nice thing it that itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s also a reflection on the club and the type of Premiership season we had,Ã¢â‚¬Â said first assistant coach Chris.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been very, very reliable for us, wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t let anyone down but will also be the type of lad that once heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s there, theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll enjoy having him around.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a good trainer, loves to be involved in a good team spirit and the most important thing is that he deserves it because of the season heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s had and the progress heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s made.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“He will use the experience to better himself, for sure.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Chris Hughton says Michael Dawson thoroughly deserved his call as stand-by for England's World Cup squad.
