Jermain Defoe has already scored twice for England this season and was unlucky to have a third ruled out against Ukraine last month. Defoe has also netted four times in the league for Spurs and the striker is naturally looking forward to tonight’s match with San Marino.
“You look at the fixtures and there are going to be chances in the game, no disrespect to San Marino. I just want to be focused to go into the game in the right frame of mind,” Jermain said.
“Two years ago I got a hat-trick against Bulgaria but it’s only when you get one in the game that you can start to think about those things. The only things I concentrate on going into the game are that I’m on it, that my movement is right and hopefully it will come.”
This is the type of game where England’s strikers will be queuing up to play but with Wayne Rooney guaranteed a start as captain, will JD be given a chance to add to his international tally?
