JD hoping to play his part for England

Jermain Defoe said it would be 'special' to play a part in England qualifying for the World Cup Finals.


The Three Lions are two wins away from reaching next summer’s showpiece in Brazil.

If Roy Hodgson’s men beat Montenegro tonight and Poland on Tuesday - both matches at Wembley - they will win the group and take an automatic spot in the finals.

Jermain, in fine form this season with seven goals, is in the squad with team-mates Andros Townsend and Kyle Walker.

“We’ve two home games, two massive games and it’s in our hands,” said Jermain, who has 19 goals in his 54 caps.

“That’s why you play football, to be involved in games like that.

“It would be a dream (to be involved), then having a good season and making sure I’m on the plane (to Brazil). To score the goals to help get us there, at Wembley, that would be special.”
