Stats show why Jermain Defoe is England’s ideal replacement for injured Harry Kane [INFOGRAPHIC]

A severe injury to Harry Kane left the Three Lions in an attacking dilemma ahead of the latest round of World Cup qualifiers.

Kane’s suspected ankle ligament injury in Tottenham’s 6-0 victory over Millwall in the FA Cup at the weekend is expected to keep the Spurs forward out of action for approximately seven weeks and ruled him out of Gareth Southgate’s England squad announcement on Friday. Sunderland’s Jermain Defoe was the one selected to take up the place of the sidelined youngster and exclusive stats from daily fantasy football game www.oulala.com show why this was the best decision.

 

...The Premier League veteran has taken 66 individual shots on goal, 40 more than Rashford and over 30 more than Vardy, Rooney and Sturrdige, converting an average of 21% of his attempts.
