Tottenham fans react to Jermain Defoe's Twitter post after England win against Lithuania

By Amir Mir

Jermain Defoe expressed his delight on Twitter after scoring for England during their 2-0 win against Lithuania on Sunday night.

Tottenham supporters hailed the senior man for his truly inspiring story regarding Sunderland fan Bradley Lowery who is a five-year-old with cancer.

The young fan led the England team out at Wembley alongside his best friend Defoe with supporters praising the striker for what he has done for the youngster.

It was the first time in over four years that Defoe had represented the national side and it took him only 20 minutes to get back on the scoresheet.

The goal started with Raheem Sterling on the left-hand side whose pace was too quick for the opposition backline and his low cross found Defoe unmarked in the box and he fired home.

Defoe was a calming figure throughout the match and he showcased this by getting into the right positions on a number of occasions before he was substituted after 60 minutes.

There was no surprise that the White Hart Lane faithful praised the experienced man for his display following his Twitter post.

The supporters reminded him that he was a Tottenham legend and that they were pleased he was able to mark his England return with a goal.

 

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Defoe will now turn his attention to club matters where he will be looking to help his Sunderland side climb off the foot of the Premier League table.

David Moyes’ side travel to fellow strugglers Watford on April 1, knowing a defeat could all but end their small hope of survival.
