Deserved call up for Defoe after Kane blunder

With Harry Kane out injured, England manager Gareth Southgate has called upon the experience of former Tottenham Hotspur striker Jermain Defoe to help England through a bit of an injury crisis.

he has netted 14 Premier League goals this season and the only English player to score more is Harry Kane himself with 19, so purely on goalscoring form he is worth his place, especially when you consider he is doing it in a team desperately fighting relegation.

Kane is out for between four to six weeks we hear as a result of his unnecessary selection against Millwall in the FA Cup quarter-final at White Hart Lane at the weekend. The international break comes to our rescue a little bit as that takes up 10 days.

He will still miss Southampton (h), Burnley (a), Swansea City (a), Watford (h), Bournemouth (h), probably the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea and possibly the league game against a revitalised Leicester City at Filbert Street. We hope he is back for the North London Derby against Arsenal at White Hart Lane on Sunday April 30th but there are no guarantees.

It is time Christian Eriksen scored from a free-kick, if he could do that we would add a weapon to our bow that we are missing at the moment. More training ground practice required, that's how it will be rectified, determined practice.
