Defoe to the rescue

August 13, 2009


Jermain Defoe was England’s savior last night as the ‘Three Lions’ met the ‘Oranje’ of  Holland for a friendly in the Amsterdam Arena. Defoe came on during the second half to score 2 goals after England were being led 2-0 at half time, courtesy of Kuyt and Van der Vaart for the Dutch, and also to be noted both goals were gifts from England players Rio Ferdinand and new City boy Barry.

Defoe came on in the second half to add more impact to the attack, and scored brilliantly from passes by Lampard, and Milner to save the honor of his country. Despite the draw, Capello played it cool after the match, and praised Defoe for his goals, along with James Milner who came on as a substitute, and Carlton Cole as well.

England’s next outing will be against Croatia at Wembley on September 9, but this time it will be for the World Cup qualifiers. A match was in fact played between Croatia and Belarus last night for the qualifiers, with the Croatians winning 3-1, leaving them 2nd in group 6, 7points adrift from leaders England, and the latter will need only a draw to qualify.
