Shame season's over - JD

Jermain Defoe conceded he was sorry to see the end of the season after going out with a bang on England duty.

The livewire striker grabbed two goals in England's 6-0 thumping of Andorra in a World Cup qualifier at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday.

As the rest of the England squad finally put their feet up for summer, ‘JD' admitted he was still raring to go after the frustration of being sidelined between January 27-April 19 with a foot injury.

"Everyone is ready for their holidays but I feel great," he beamed. "No-one wants to be injured and miss games but I was out for 12 weeks and I still feel fresh.

"The way we finished the season at Spurs showed how strong the squad is and everyone is buzzing, especially when you look back at where we were at the start of last season.

"We will all come back positive in pre-season after finishing so strongly but as I said after the England game, I'm still ready to go!"
