International round-up: Spurs stars strike

Jermain Defoe, Clint Dempsey and Jan Vertonghen all found the back of the net in the latest round of international matches.

JD, winning his 50th cap for England, struck the third goal as Roy Hodgson's team made a convincing start to their World Cup qualification campaign with a 5-0 win over Moldova in Chisinau.

In Cardiff, Vertonghen scored with a thunderous free-kick late on to seal Belgium a 2-0 win over Wales in Cardiff. Mousa Dembele and Gareth Bale made up the Spurs contingent in the match, with the latter forcing a fingertip save with a fiercely driven shot as Wales searched for an equaliser after Vincent Kompany put Belgium ahead just before half-time.

Dempsey got the USA off to a superb start in their match against Jamaica with a goal after only 36 seconds, but Jurgen Klinsmann's team fell to a surprising 2-1 defeat in Kingston.

France got their campaign off to a winning start with a 1-0 win over Finland in Helsinki with Hugo Lloris in goal for Les Bleus.

And finally, Iceland ended an 11-game, 25-year wait for a win over Norway with a surprise 2-0 win over their Group E World Cup qualification rivals in Reykjavik. Gylfi Sigurdsson played the full match and it was his long pass that Alfred Finnbogason ran onto to ensure Iceland's victory.
