Tottenham ace Jermain Defoe admits the support of his family has helped him earn his return to the England setup.
"Mum comes to every game. She loves it," said Defoe.
"Even at a young age, before I was born, she used to watch her brothers play.
"She didn't travel to Holland but she watched the game on TV and was quite emotional.
"After the game I spoke to her and she was on the phone crying. I was like, 'Come on mum, please'. She gets like that sometimes."
