Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe has offered an excuse for England national team boss Fabio Capello following the team’s World Cup flop.

Defoe said that the Three Lions manager is liked and respected by the England players and the reason for their earlier than expected exit from the World Cup in South Africa was basically due to the fact that Capello was a touch unlucky.

"If you speak to the players, they all say the same - he's a great manager. He was just a little bit unlucky,” he said.
