Tottenham striker Defoe nets stunning five in reserves win

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe is feeling in excellent goal scoring form.

The 29-year-old has been in fine form in training and kept up his push for a first-team place by scoring five goals in a 6-1 win over Charlton at Tottenham's training ground on Tuesday.

Defoe was happy with the feat, which came exactly two years to the day after his last five-goal haul against Wigan.

"I love scoring goals, even if it's in training," Defoe said.

"It was good for me to play that game because I haven't played for five games so you don't want to lose that sharpness and fitness as well.

"It's even better to do it in a proper match. We will just see what happens at the weekend."
