right then, DB had no part in the friendly against Slovenia, but it doesn’t stop him from being praised by his team mate. last time it was Walcott, now it’s Defoe’s turn. Defoe’s experienced from being overlooked in WC 06 has made him even stronger player and probably as determined as DB to stamp out his critics by working hard and help his team mate to achieve best results. it widely known that DB was badly treated after England defeat to Argentina back in 1998, but his comeback had probably the most talking topic the years after. his achievement is probably the best example for young players and Defoe knows it well.
