Localized near-fields at laser-excited nanostructures have opened up a new dimension in attosecond science to enhance, fundamentally modify, and control electronic strong-field processes [1, 2]. Here we consider sub-wavelength nanofocussing in unsupported dielectric nanospheres to generate tailored near-fields and study the resulting strong-field electron dynamics via the angle-resolved photoemission . To further investigate the electron acceleration process we modelled the dynamics using a quasi-classical trajectory-based mean field Monte-Carlo approach, which is extended to account for propagation effects of the near-fields. We demonstrate symmetry breaking and directional controllability of the carrier-envelope-phase dependent emission of recollision electrons due to the propagation-induced near-field deformation. We show that directionality of the photoemission remains largely unaffected by local field ellipticity and nonlinear many-particle charge interaction, even if the latter results in a significant boost of the final electron energies.
