Portsmouth boss Redknapp: Defoe pure goal machine

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp says Jermain Defoe should start for England tonight in Belarus.

He said: "Jermain is a terrific player, one of the best finishers in the modern game. He is a good little goalscorer. He doesn't get fazed when he misses a chance, but then that is what good strikers do.

"He has always had that knack of scoring. That is what you need from your striker as a manager. It's something he has always had. He has done it since I was watching him play South East Counties games when he was 15.

"He used to score every week. Jermain's a goalscoring machine."
