Joe Hart named as England captain for World Cup qualifier against Lithuania
Mar 30 2017 by Marjorie Miles
But England, once again, are getting the job done as they move closer to reaching the World Cup.
Lithuania are familiar foes for England, as the Three Lions defeated Sunday's visitors twice during qualification for Euro 2016, winning 4-0 at home and 3-0 away.
But Iceland's stunning run last summer has clearly indicated that the gap is closing.
Defoe's inclusion, however, represented flawless sense with a record of 14 Premier League goals and two assists in a Sunderland side propping up the table and England's main striker Harry Kane out injured.
The England players will be wearing black armbands for Sunday's World Cup qualifier with Lithuania, whilst a wreath-laying ceremony and a minute's silence will both be held before kick-off, as a mark of respect. "Ultimately I just want to get as much out of my career as I can".
"It's a painful reminder and it's a good lesson for the future".
He added: "It's going to be a tough game". But all we ask is that they support us in the right way and they're respectful. "We need to make it matter". I had to think seriously about it because we have a squad with some emerging leaders.
Dier played in that game and has become an England regular in a short space of time.

On Sunday, the Nets beat the Hawks, 107-92, with Atlanta missing Kent Bazemore , Thabo Sefolosha , and Paul Millsap due to injury. He appeared in his first game since January 31, 2016, on Tuesday night in Brooklyn, having undergone hip surgery last February.

Completing the front end changes is a roof-mounted LED light bar housed with a roof pod along with a snorkel for water crossings. A 6 mm-thick metal skid plate protects the engine and other components while tubular side rails protect the body and chassis.
"I would love to one day be able to do that". It would be a real honour for me and it's something I'd like to work towards, but it's something the manger will decide and he will pick who's best.
Dier, meanwhile, has called on England fans to support the Three Lions "in the right way" - especially in the wake of the appalling Westminster terrorist attack.
In November 2015 England hosted France in a Wembley friendly just days after the attacks on Paris that left 130 dead with the national stadium providing an impeccable tribute to their visitors on an emotional night.
"If anyone would like to share footage or photos that they have taken or been passed from the match which shows supporters engaging in anti-social or unacceptable behaviour then please send this to [email protected]", the message continued.
"Supporters represent the country when they go away and the majority do that. We've got a sell-out crowd tomorrow and we're grateful for their support".
The England Supporters Travel Club is to withdraw the membership of any fans involved in anti-social, xenophobic or disrespectful behaviour on Wednesday and Southgate urged fans to remember that they represent their country when travelling overseas.
