Jermain Defoe scores on England return in comfortable win – MyJoyOnline

Jermain Defoe marked his return to the England team with a goal as Jamie Vardy also scored in a comfortable 2-0 win over Lithuania on Sunday afternoon.

Defoe made his first appearance for England since 2013 and captain for the day Joe Hart allowed him to lead out of the team with mascot Bradley Lowery.

He opened the scoring with a fine finish following excellent work from Raheem Sterling on the left wing.

Bar one awkward moment just before half-time England were in total control but they found it difficult to break down a stubborn Lithuania side.

Vardy managed to get the second minutes after coming on as a substitute and it maintains England’s grip on the group.
