Tottenham striker Defoe thrilled with England goal

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe was happy with his goal in England's win over Moldova.

Defoe netted the third goal in the World Cup qualifier.

He said: "It was good to get a start, a 50th cap, a goal, a good win. It was a great night for me.

"It was important to win the game and to be patient but the early goal helped. To get a goal as well was fantastic.

"I've got two in two but I think everyone has got to keep proving themselves to be honest - not just me.

"I'm sure all the lads would say that as well."
