Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe will miss England’s friendly against Brazil due to the ankle injury he sustained at West Brom.
Defoe went over his ankle in the first half to avoid a challenge from Baggies striker Shane Long and had to be helped off the pitch. He was later seen watching the remainder of the match from the Spurs bench with a crutch in his hand.
AVB confirmed to the press after the victory that the striker would be sent for a scan to determine the extent of the damage and will be withdrawn from Roy Hodgson’s squad.
