Jermain Defoe earned his 51st England cap in Tuesday night's World Cup qualifying match against Ukraine - and we followed his every move.

JD watch

The striker was denied an 18th goal for his country in the first half and went on to complete the full 90 minutes as Frank Lampard's late penalty rescued a point.

It actually took until the 10th minute for JD to get his first touch of the ball as Ukraine started brightly.

Here's his night at Wembley...

First half
