A closer look at Jermain Defoe's 45-minute stint in England's 4-1 defeat against Denmark on Wednesday night.

3mins: First touch but Jensen in to nick the ball away.

9mins: Chasing after ball down left channel, slid in and fouled Jensen.

10mins: Linked up play well after receiving pass from Neville.

13mins: Involved in move that led to Beckham drilling shot just wide.

16mins: First effort at goal, took pass from Rooney, weighed up his options but shot from 20 yards blocked.

42mins: Took throw from Neville in own half and travelled with ball before passing to Rooney.
