It's difficult to ignore Jermain Defoe's prowess in front of goal with the nippy Tottenham Hotspur forward widely regarded as England's best finisher.

But despite a hatful of goals this season for Spurs, Defoe is constantly overlooked for a starting place for the Three Lions as Capello prefers a bulky forward like Heskey when he does select a partner for Rooney.

Defoe will most likely feature from the bench in the World Cup but against tired defensive legs, it could be the perfect move.

Did you know?

Defoe scored in 10 consecutive games while on loan at Bournemouth.
