Tottenham striker Defoe relieved to make England squad

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe is relieved to have made England's Euros squad.

Defoe feared for his place after failing to nail down a regular start at Spurs this past season.

He told Tottenham's website: "I'm delighted because I knew last summer I had a massive season coming up and I worked hard on my fitness to be as sharp as possible.

"I think that work has paid off."
