Tottenham striker Defoe shocked by England snub

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe is upset over his latest England snub.

Defoe, who has battled his way back into the starting line-up with his club, had expected to be named.

However, Capello opted for Danny Welbeck and Bobby Zamora instead, with Defoe missing out along with former team-mate Peter Crouch.

"I am obviously very disappointed," said Defoe.

"I feel I have not let Mr Capello down when I have played, but I will work hard to get my place back."
