The England boss preferred Jamie Vardy up front but with Wembley playing host to Lithuania in a friendly on Sunday evening, Defoe likely has a good chance of a run-out in that one. And the presence of Bradley Lowery as mascot should only add to what promises to be a special night. From a Sunderland perspective, the recall of Defoe to the national side has merely precipitated talk of him leaving the Stadium of Light in the summer should David Moyes oversee relegation from the Premier League.
