Defoe for England- by a totally unbiased Spurs fan

Mar
29

 

It seems that England fans are split on the fate of Jermain Defoe, with many falling on the side of ‘he’s too old to play for England!’

I’m going to attempt to break down why this wrong and how it highlights one of our biggest problems in international football.
