Defoe feels he has nothing to prove for World Cup place

Jermain Defoe has said he feels his record should speak for itself when it comes to a place England’s World Cup squad, Sky Sports has been reported.

It was suggested that Defoe’s decision to leave Tottenham Hotspur for MLS side Toronto would count against him when Roy Hodgson came to pick his 23-man party for Brazil. Defoe has also recently picked up an injury, which led to further speculation Hodgson would overlook the 31-year-old.


But Defoe has said that his injury is minor and regardless of where he plies his trade, he should be worthy of a seat on the plane. “I missed three games. It happens in football, players get injured,” Defoe said. “But if you miss three games and that changes the fact that you could, I don't know, go to a tournament, that's crazy.


“I don't feel like I need to sell myself to anyone because I'll just let my football do the talking,” he added. “I've done that since I made my professional debut at 17 ... I'm sure the manager knows what I can do.”


Defoe has 55 England caps to his name, scoring 19 goals, having made his senior international bow in March 2004. He missed out on a place in the squad for Euro 2004 and the 2006 World Cup, but did travel to World Cup 2010 and Euro 2012.
