Defoe scored his 150th Premier League goal last weekend and remains the top English goalscorer throughout the league this season.

 

Former Liverpool and Aston Villa striker Dean Saunders has labelled Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe ‘world class’ and says he is amazed he can’t get into the England squad. Defoe made it to 150 Premier League goals last weekend, after opening the scoring in the Black Cats’ 3-0 win over Hull and he is the current top English scorer in the Premier League with seven goals so far this season.

The 34-year-old’s last England cap came over three years ago in an international friendly defeat to Chile, and many were disappointed not to see the former Tottenham marksman included in Roy Hodgson’s England squad for Euro 2016.
