Sherwood tips Defoe for England

Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood has praised departing striker Jermain Defoe, claiming that he should be in the England squad for the World Cup in Brazil.

Jermain Defoe comes on for Roberto Soldado.

Defoe came off the bench to score Tottenham's second goal and secure all three points in a 2-0 win against a resurgent Crystal Palace on Saturday.

"Wherever Jermain plays, anywhere in the world, he will score goals," Sherwood told Sky Sports. "That's why I would say he's an automatic choice to be on that plane for Brazil.

"You always need goalscorers. I think in this country, we've got good young talents but I'm not sure we've got many better goalscorers than Jermain Defoe."

Sherwood also indicated Toronto will gain a "fine goalscorer." With the 31-year-old having agreed a move to the MLS from February 28, Sherwood maintained he would miss Defoe's presence in the Spurs squad.

"We took it to the opposition after the break. It was a typical Jermain Defoe finish. He's pounced on it and stuck. I'll be sorry to lose Jermain," Sherwood said. "Toronto are getting a fine goalscorer. I don't think there are many better goalscorers than Jermain out there.

"Crystal Palace did not look like a team who are struggling at the bottom of the league. I thought they might sit but it was the opposite and they should have been ahead at half-time.

"They looked like they played with more desire which we spoke about at the half-time. We have a group of lads who are very talented but unless you marry that with desire you won't get the results. If you don't show desire your ability counts for nothing. Second half we picked that up."
